PDBe tools for structural biologists
- analyse your own structures
Identify structural homologues in the PDB. PDBe's Secondary Structure Matching service (SSM) allows you to interactively compare, align and superimpose protein structures in 3D.
Explore macromolecular (protein, DNA/RNA and ligand) interfaces and predict the quarternary structure of your protein.
Search and analyse protein-ligand interactions, binding environments and structural motifs.
Generate X-ray structure validation reports to assess the quality of early, intermediate and near-final models. Identify any potential problems that need addressing prior to structure analysis, publication and deposition.

PDBe services for structural biologists
Perform protein sequence searches and identify similar sequences in the PDB.
Search, visualise and analyse structures in the Electron Microscopy Data Bank (EMDB)
Search, visualise and analyse NMR structures in the PDB archive
With over 150,000 downloads Biobar is a popular toolbar for Firefox that provides rapid access to more than 45 major biological data resources directly from within your browser.
Search for chemical components (ligands, small molecules and monomers) that appear in PDB entries.
Visualisation, analysis and validation of NMR entries.
Rapid access to protein-ligand interaction statistics.
Check the availability and extent of 3D structural coverage of your protein of interest using our UniProt-PDB sequence-coverage widget. You can also include the UniPDB widget in your own webpages.
FTP access to PDB and EMDB entries, and other PDBe resources.
Access worked examples that show how PDBe tools and services can be used to answer specific questions in structural biology.
Hands-on activities and teaching resources for A-level and early years undergraduate students and teachers
SIFTS is the authoritative source of up-to-date residue-level annotation of protein structures in the PDB with data available in UniProt, NCBI taxonomy, IntEnz, CATH, SCOP, GO, InterPro, Pfam and Pubmed.
View a slideshow of images that convey information about a PDB entry. You can also include the PDBportfolio widget in your own webpages.
PDBprints feature stylised icons that provide at-a-glance summary information for PDB entries. You can also include the PDBprints widget in your own webpages.
