2019 calendar: Science and Society

The link between scientific research and day-to-day life is more significant than one might first imagine. Our new PDBe calendar for 2019, entitled 'Science and Society,' explores the connection between these two seemingly disconnected activities through the creation of artworks by school students.

A successful Hackathon with BioExcel partners

Last month we hosted a hackathon event where BioExcel developers joined members of the PDBe team to tackle problems related to programmatic access of PDB data. In addition to helping the BioExcel partners to answer questions by using the PDBe REST API, our team also introduce them to a new graph database that is being developed at PDBe.

Bringing clarity to chemistry at PDBe

The PDB is an archive of macromolecular structures, but the small molecules bound in these structures are the focus of much interest. We have recently made some changes to the way we display images of small molecules at PDBe, which brings a lot more clarity to their chemistry.

wwPDB news: ORCIDs To Become Mandatory for OneDep Contact Authors

The wwPDB is making an important change to the data we collect from users at deposition in the OneDep system. Please see the following announcement from the wwPDB:

"The wwPDB OneDep system for deposition, validation and biocuration will require contact authors to provide their unique ORCID identifiers when preparing depositions later this summer. This change will enable wwPDB efforts to correctly attribute PDB structures to contact authors. At a later point, ORCID will be used to authenticate and reorganize access to deposition data within OneDep."
