Finding the best data for your needs in the PDB archive


There are over 100, 000 three dimensional structures in the Protein Data Bank. Some are unique, others are present in many different forms. This webinar will introduce you to assessing the quality of a given structure and finding the best one for the analysis you want to undertake.

This webinar was recorded on 15 November 2017. It is best viewed in full screen mode using Google Chrome. 

See the EMBL-EBI training pages for a list of upcoming webinars.

This webinar is aimed at scientists with an interest in learning more about the PDB. You can learn more about PDBe in our webinar PDBe: Searching for biological macromolecular structures.

No prior knowledge of bioinformatics is required, but an undergraduate level understanding of biology would be useful.
