Different Ways To Explore New Entries
On average, the wwPDB releases 170 structures into the PDB archive each week. The RCSB PDB offers different ways of exploring these new entries:
- The Latest Structures widget on the home page provides a slideshow of individual entries. It displays the entry title, image, citation, and a link to the PubMed abstract, if available. Users can pause the show at any point to read the entire abstract, click on the entry title to view the entry's Structure Summary page, or go straight to the Jmol view of the entry.
- The set of recently released structures can be launched in the Query Results Browser by clicking on the date listed at the top of the page, the link provided in the Latest Structures widget, and the link to the Latest Release from the left hand Search menu. From the Query Result Browser, users can drill through by category (organism, taxonomy, experimental method, and more), generate reports, and download structure and sequences files.
- The MyPDB service can be set to run saved searches with each update. Email alerts (weekly or monthly) will be sent when new entries matching the search are released in the PDB archive.
