EMBL is committed to sharing research advances and sustaining scientific interaction throughout the coronavirus pandemic. We are delighted to announce that this conference is going virtual and invite you to join us online.
 

Symposium Overview

Join this conference and celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Protein Data Bank (PDB) with us. With over 1 million unique users worldwide and more than 400 biomedical data resources, the PDB represents the achievements and milestones of the structural biology community.

The PDB is one of the oldest surviving archives in any biomedical field. The structural biology community established the single worldwide archive for macromolecular structure data in 1971. The PDB has embraced a culture of open access leading to its widespread use by the research community (with nowadays more than 1 million unique users worldwide) and by more than 400 biomedical data resources.

Structural biology and structural bioinformatics have had an enormous impact on our understanding of the mechanism and function of biological macromolecules. The PDB acts as a custodian for all these data, representing the achievements and milestones of the structural biology community.

The archive is managed by the Worldwide Protein Data Bank consortium (wwPDB) which includes partner sites in Asia, Europe and America, making this a truly global effort. The 50th anniversary is an opportunity to celebrate the advances in structural biology and bioinformatics and peer into the future prospects for these fields.
