Biophysical Society Celebrates 50 Years of the Protein Data Bank (PDB50)

Established in 1971, the Protein Data Bank (PDB), an archive of macromolecular structural data that is freely and publicly available to the global community, is marking its 50th birthday this year. In celebration, BPS will host a virtual symposium on October 6, 2021, highlighting some of the high-impact applications of protein structural data, with a particular focus on the areas of structure prediction and membrane protein biophysics. Gaetano T. Montelione, joined by RCSB PDB Director Stephen K. Burley and Director Emerita Helen M. Berman, are organizing this commemorative event.

  • Helen M. Berman, Rutgers - The State University of New Jersey and RCSB Protein Data Bank, USA
  • Stephen K. Burley, Rutgers - The State University of New Jersey and RCSB Protein Data Bank, USA
  • Gaetano T. Montelione, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, USA
