Documentation for New and Improved APIs
Recently-introduced Search and Data APIs offer comprehensive functionality and high performance.
As a result, legacy RCSB PDB APIs (REST search and fetch) will be discontinued in November 2020.
The new Search API allows users to run queries across RCSB PDB Search Services and retrieve a list of relevant identifiers such as PDB IDs, entity IDs, assembly IDs, and more.
Documentation is available to help users learn the concepts and syntax behind the new services. Use this documentation to display all of the details of a specific API request, and then run the search request and to see the response.
Users of the legacy APIs are strongly encouraged to migrate to the new APIs. Please contact us with any questions.
