We will be hosting an art exhibition at the Michaelhouse Cafe, Cambridge, UK to celebrate artwork created in our PDB art project. The Protein Data Bank in Europe (PDBe), The Art Society CANTAB and The Art Society GRANTA are working with local school art departments to create artworks inspired by life’s building blocks. PDBe maintains a worldwide free database containing 140,000 3D shapes of biological molecules important for health research. The molecules are too small to see even with a normal microscope, and are very complex. In this project, PDBe scientists help students explore the database (PDBe.org) and ways of depicting molecules, using structure as inspiration for the artworks.
