In the exhibit hall, RCSB PDB will be participating in the "vendor passport" program. Visit the RCSB PDB booth (#218), for a stamp (and the latest news); complete your passport and to enter in a drawing for a gift card. Come to the exhibit hall on Monday July 23 to build 3D protein models with students visiting ACA for the International Space Station Session.

RCSB PDB will also accept donations to the wwPDB Foundation which raises funds from Individual and Corporate sponsors in support of the outreach activities of the wwPDB crucial to the future of the PDB archive, including workshops, symposia, and advisory meetings.

Director Stephen Burley will present Ligand Validation for the Protein Data Bank as part of the Best practices for building, refining, and analyzing ligands in macromolecular structures session.

Posters will include

  • Volume-ensemble search models for molecular replacement
  • New Online Curriculum: The PDB Pipeline & Data Archiving
  • RCSB PDB: Enabling Breakthroughs in Biomedical Research and Structure-Guided Drug Discovery
  • RCSB PDB: Sustaining a Living Digital Data Resource That Enables Breakthroughs in Scientific Research and Biomedical Education

The RCSB PDB Poster Prize will also be awarded to recognize a student poster presentation involving macromolecular crystallography.

RCSB PDB is looking for Scientific Software Developers and Postdoctoral Fellows in computational chemistry and molecular visualization to join the RCSB PDB team at UC San Diego. Please come talk to us for more information.
