Bringing Structure to Biology
PDB DOIs now directed to wwPDB entry pages
The wwPDB partners are pleased to announce an improved mechanism for the resolution of digital object identifiers (DOIs) associated with released PDB entries. We have launched new wwPDB landing web-pages for each released PDB entry. These pages present basic information about the corresponding PDB structure, offer the model coordinate, experimental data and validation file downloads from the wwPDB FTP area, and, importantly, provide links to all the wwPDB partner websites that serve further advanced information about PDB structures. For an example, please navigate to the landing page for one of recently released entries in the PDB archive https://doi.org/10.2210/pdb6qw9/pdb. This development represents a significant improvement over the previous mechanism, where DOIs would resolve to a PDB-formatted file.
For more information on how this will improve linking to PDB entries from journals and the plans to extend PDB accession codes, please visit the wwPDB news page.
