New Display in Library Lobby

Check out the video display of moving 3-D macromolecular structures from the Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics, Protein Data Bank (RCSB PDB). A worldwide repository for X-Ray crystal structures of large biomolecules, the PDB currently contains 41,000 structures with over 100 new structures added weekly. The PDB database is freely available to the public at

This video display, created by Jeff Milton of the PDB laboratory, UCSD Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, is on loan to the Biomedical Library until June 30. In addition to viewing the video images, you can pick up handouts with more information about the structures on display and about the PDB itself. To contact the RCSB PDB, send email to
