PDBe: Searching for biological macromolecular structures


The Protein Data Bank in Europe (PDBe) is a free and easily accessible resource for biological macromolecular structures. We collect, organise and disseminate data in both the Protein Data Bank (PDB) and the Electron Microscopy Data Bank (EMDB). This webinar will show you how access the data by searching the PDB and EMDB databases and how to use some of the tools and services that we also provide.

This webinar is for anyone interested in protein or nucleic acid biology who would like to access information about the structure and related function of these macromolecules. This resource does not require an in-depth knowledge of structural biology.

This webinar took place on 13 April 2016. For a full list of upcoming webinars, please look at our Training pages.
