Access New Website Features
New and enhanced features have been added to the RCSB PDB resource:
- Download data in batches. The Download Tool can download groups of structures, experimental data files, sequences, and ligands in a variety of formats. This tool is launched as a stand-alone application using the Java Web Start protocol.
- Map genomic position to protein. Mutations in a gene can have profound effects on the function of a protein. This analysis tool highlights the location of a gene location (i.e., the site of a SNP).
- Explore sequence, structure, and related annotations. Protein Feature View provides a graphical summary of how sequence data corresponds to PDB entries. New options include visualization of sequence motifs and access to related organisms with the same gene name.
- Access large structures. "Large structures" (containing > 62 chains and/or 99999 ATOM lines) are represented as single files in PDBx/mmCIF and PDBML formats. These entries can be easily found (or omitted) using Advanced Search. Corresponding tar files containing minimal/best effort files in PDB format that represent these entries can be accessed through individual Structure Summary pages and using the Download Tool.
