Kleywegt team

The Protein Data Bank in Europe (PDBe), led by Prof. Gerard Kleywegt, is the European partner in the Worldwide Protein Data Bank organisation (wwPDB), which maintains the single international archive for biomacromolecular structure data. The other wwPDB partners are the Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics (RCSB) and Biological Magnetic Resonance Bank (BMRB) in the USA and the Protein Data Bank of Japan (PDBj).

PDBe is a deposition and annotation site for the Protein Data Bank (PDB) and the Electron Microscopy Data Bank (EMDB). The major goal of PDBe is to provide integrated structural data resources that evolve with the needs of biologists. To that end, the PDBe team endeavours to:

  • handle deposition and annotation of structural data expertly;
  • provide an integrated resource of high-quality macromolecular structures and related data; and
  • maintain in-house expertise in all the major structure-determination techniques.
