Articles covering a variety of topics have been published:

  • The RCSB Protein Data Bank: new resources for research and education (2013) Nucleic Acids Research doi: 10.1093/nar/gks1200

Update of new tools and resources that provide a structural view of biology for research and education, including improved methods for simple and complex searches of PDB data, creating specialized access to chemical component data and providing domain-based structural alignments.

  • Creating a community resource for protein science (2012) Protein Science 21: 1587-1596 doi: 10.1002/pro.2154

Discusses how management, data content, infrastructure, and community have influenced the continued development of the PDB. It also analyzes the corpus of data to identify trends in the field of structural biology.

Describes modules that provide state-of-the-art tools for protein structure comparison, pairwise and multiple sequence alignments, working with DNA and protein sequences, analysis of amino acid properties, detection of protein modifications and prediction of disordered regions in proteins as well as parsers for common file formats using a biologically meaningful data model.

  • Illustrating the Machinery of Life: Viruses (2012) Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education 40: 291-296 doi: 10.1002/bmb.20636

David Goodsell's series continues with illustrations of poliovirus, influenza, and HIV.

David Goodsell describes his thoughts and process for scientific illustrations.

A list of all RCSB PDB articles is available from the Publications page.
