PDB Structure Download Statistics

Note: Improvements to this page are being developed and will be available soon (Feb 18, 2014).

Monthly statistics of FTP and HTTP (web) downloads and views for each PDB structure from the wwPDB sites are available (August 2007-present). These statistics are filtered to remove user or programming bias (as described here) to provide a more accurate picture.

This form searches download statistics by PDB ID or IDs. By default, the data displayed is combined from the wwPDB sites. Results can also be displayed by wwPDB site source and month. Search results may be downloaded by in a comma-separated value file (.csv) or a tab delimited data file (.tab).
Data are updated once per month and are aggregate for the entire month.

Top 10 List

A top 10 list of the most popular downloads is available for the most recent month and overall since August 2007. Since these statistics are dynamically generated, they might take a few seconds to display.
