Latest Website Release
New and enhanced features have been added to the RCSB PDB website, including:
* Visualizing Molecular Surfaces. Protein Workshop now supports molecular surfaces to aid in the display of quaternary structure, protein-protein interactions, and binding sites. A detailed description of how to use this feature is available. The program is one of the molecular viewing options available from every Structure Summary page.
* Exploring ligands. Improved Jmol visualization, information about subcomponents, and links to DrugBank are some of the features added to Ligand Summary pages. Additionally, binding affinity data from PDBbind have been added to the External Ligand Annotations widget on Structure Summary pages.
* Access pre-released sequences via Web Services. The RCSB PDB supports RESTful Web Services can be used to help software developers access data more easily. A new service for accessing pre-released sequences in FASTA format has been added; information about all possible services is available.
The What's New page has complete descriptions of all the new features.
