Bioinformatics: EMBL-EBI - Bringing Structure to Biology - Protein Structures and Tools BeginnersPrerequisitesNew
An understanding protein structure is vital for the elucidation of its function. Information gleaned from the three dimensional structures of proteins is used to understand the biochemical and functional roles of such molecules in life and for the design and discovery of drug molecules for a variety of diseases and illnesses such as cancer, influenza and tuberculosis.
The Protein Data Bank (PDB) is the central publicly accessible repository of all experimentally derived macromolecular structures. Containing over 80,000 structures of proteins and nucleic acids the PDB is an essential scientific resource.
The PDB is managed by a consortium of international organizations collectively known as the worldwide Protein Data Bank (wwPDB). The Protein Data Bank in Europe (PDBe) is one of the founding members of the wwPDB along with the RCSB Protein Data Bank in the USA and Protein Data Bank Japan(PDBj) in Japan.
In addition to serving as a deposition site for data deposited to the PDB, the PDBe also provides services for the search and analysis of the collective wealth of data contained within the PDB. Further information is available here.
This session is one of a series of short introductions to EBI Services, run together, but bookable separately (see Related Courses section below).
