The publication describes how provides important tools and resources to search, visualize, and analyze experimentally-determined 3D biostructures alongside computed structure models of proteins predicted using artificial intelligence/machine learning-based tools. PDB-Dev, a prototype system supporting integrative or hybrid methods structural biology, and RCSB PDB training resources available from PDB-101 are also described.

This article is part of a collection of articles from the IUCr 2023 Congress in Melbourne, Australia, and commemorates the 75th anniversary of the International Union of Crystallography. It describes presentations made by RCSB PDB team members at the meeting in August 2023.
