PDBe-KB COVID-19 Data Portal - more features added

17 Apr 2020

Download service and similar proteins data added to PDBe-KB COVID-19 pages

We recently announced the new PDBe-KB COVID-19 data portal, allowing users to easily access a wealth of structural data from the SARS-CoV-2 virus. We have now added more functionality to these pages, allowing bulk download of all relevant PDB structures and highlighting all the PDB entries with high sequence identity to SARS-CoV-2 proteins.

PDBe-KB aggregated views for proteins - improved visualisation

21 Feb 2020

Improved visualisation and more at the aggregated views of proteins from PDBe-KB

We are always looking for innovative and helpful ways to display the data on PDBe-KB’s protein-centric pages. We have now introduced a number of visualisation improvements, including adding the new Mol* viewer, emphasising key interaction sites, highlighting residue conflicts between PDB and UniProt, and integration of the PDBe search bar into these PDBe-KB pages.


Designing our new ligand pages at PDBe-KB

Help us design PDBe-KB's aggregated views of small molecules

PDBe-KB is a community-driven resource managed by the Protein Data Bank in Europe (PDBe) team, integrating functional annotations and structure data in the PDB archive. Recently, we started providing aggregated views of available structure data and annotations for individual proteins. Now, we aim to develop similar aggregated views focusing on small molecules (i.e. ligands) in the PDB.
