Search pdb.org menu

The search pdb.org menu allows the search of the online database, pdb.org of PDB files. Words separated by spaces, entered in the search bar are sent to the server as keywords for an "advanced keyword search", and results are returned in the table below. Logical 'and' is applied to the keywords, so the more keywords entered, the fewer the hits.

Keywords such as the name of the molecule you are searching for (e.g. "haemoglobin") are the most successful.

The bold upper word of each entry is the structure Id, and beneath is the title of the PDB entry. Tap the entry to obtain details and download - an example of an entry is shown below.
