Welcome to PDB-Dev

PDB-Dev is a prototype archiving system for structural models obtained using integrative or hybrid modeling and is funded by the NSF ABI Development Program. Structural characterization of many complex macromolecular assemblies is increasingly carried out using integrative modeling, where a combination of complementary experimental and computational techniques is used to determine the structure. The structural models obtained through integrative modeling are collected, archived and disseminated to the public through PDB-Dev. Once the mechanisms for processing integrative models are fully established through PDB-Dev, the key components will be integrated with the wwPDB OneDep system and the PDB-Dev holdings will be moved into the PDB.

Released PDB-Dev Structures


Visualization of structures using Molstar

3D visualization of structures using Molstar is now available on PDB-Dev. Structures in PDB-Dev can be directly visualized from the respective entry pages. Molstar can visualize atomic as well as multi-scale structures. Read more...

Welcome to the new PDB-Dev website

The PDB-Dev web interface has been revamped to provide dynamic, responsive and mobile-friendly web pages. PDB-Dev website now includes a new service that facilitates search and retrieval of integrative structures archived in PDB-Dev. Simple search using macromolecular names, entry identifiers, experimental methods used, author names, software used and several other keywords are now supported. Read more...

Whitepaper from the integrative modeling community

In March 2019, a satellite workshop titled "Working towards federating structural models and data" was held at the Biophysical Society Annual meeting in Baltimore, Maryland to assess current progress and discuss further requirements for archiving integrative structures. A whitepaper summarizing the outcomes of the workshop was recently published in the journal Structure. Read more...
