The Worldwide Protein Data Bank (wwPDB) consists of organizations that act as deposition, data processing and distribution centers for PDB data.1 Members are: RCSB PDB (USA), PDBe (Europe) and PDBj (Japan), and BMRB (USA). The wwPDB's mission is to maintain a single PDB archive of macromolecular structural data that is freely and publicly available to the global community.

The Road to 100,000 Entries: Building a Community Resource

The Road to 100,000 Entries: Building a Community Resource
With this week's update, the PDB archive contains 99,624 entries and will soon pass the milestone of 100,000. In the weeks leading up to this event, wwPDB is looking back at other PDB milestones.

Through lively conversations, debates, and planning for the future, a community of structural biologists banded together to establish the PDB in 1971 at Brookhaven National Laboratory1 as an archive for the experimentally-determined 3D structures of biological macromolecules. Today, the PDB archive is managed by the Worldwide Protein Data Bank,2 a unique collaboration of organizations that act as deposition, curation and distribution centers for PDB data.3 The wwPDB's mission is to maintain a single PDB archive of macromolecular structural data that is freely and publicly available to the global community.4,5
