PDBe, programmatically

The Protein Data Bank in Europe (PDBe) is a member of the Worldwide Protein Databank (wwPDB), the organisation tasked with the collection, organisation and dissemination of data about biological macromolecular structures. PDBe aims to ‘bring structure to biology’ and provides a comprehensive range of tools and services to make the extensive archive of structural and functional information in the PDB more accessible to the wider biological community.

You can learn more about PDBe in our online course PDBe: Searching the Protein Data Bank

This webinar took place on 15th September 2020 and introduced the PDBe REST API service and show you how to access and analyse macromolecular structural data programmatically.

PDBe’s REST API is a programmatic way to obtain information from the PDB and EMDB. You can access details about sample, experiment, models, compounds, cross-references, publications, quality, assemblies and more.
