PDB Statistics: Growth in Number of Unique Protein Sequences in Released PDB Structures (Cumulative) at Identity 70%

This chart shows the annual and cumulative numbers of protein sequences in released PDB structures. The chart can be viewed for a few different levels of sequence identity since the beginning of the PDB archive. The cumulative bars represent the growth in unique protein sequences (number of polymeric entities) across history. The yearly bars (dark blue) tell how many new protein sequences were added in a certain year.

Note: The total number of sequence clusters in the statistics table is linked to the sequence cluster group search result page. There is a default precision threshold in calculating the numbers for performance balance. So the statistics count may have a slight discrepancy compared to the actual non-redundant group search result when the result count approaches or goes above 10,000. The group search result page provides an accurate count. The statistics page provides the trend.
