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


Validation Reports for Integrative Structures

Based on the recommendations of the wwPDB IHM TaskForce (Berman et al. 2019), we have developed validation reports for structures archived in PDB-Dev. The first version of the validation reports have been released on July 8th, 2022. Read more...

Updated Embargo Policy

We have updated the embargo (HOLD) policy for structures deposited to PDB-Dev. Following wwPDB policies, entries can be placed on hold for a maximum period of one year from the date of deposition. If an entry remains unreleased at the end of the hold period, it must either be released or withdrawn. Read more...

New Deposition and Data Harvesting System

We have developed a new Deposition and Data Harvesting System that provides a web interface for depositors to assemble all the information required for archiving integrative structures in PDB-Dev, generate a compliant mmCIF file, and deposit the structure to PDB-Dev. The old deposition system has been deprecated as of June 3rd, 2022. Read more...

BioExcel Webinar

Recently, the PDB-Dev team participated in the BioExcel webinar series. The webinar presentation was titled "PDB-Dev: A prototype system for archiving integrative structures". The recorded version of the webinar is available on youtube.
