Cells build molecule-sized motors that are powered by a variety of different fuels. Some of these motors deliver resources throughout the cell, while others power even larger motions such as muscle contraction. Atomic structures have shown how these motors capture energy and convert it into movement.
Researchers around the globe make 3D structures freely available from the Protein Data Bank (PDB) archive. PDB-101 training materials help graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, and researchers use PDB data and RCSB PDB tools. Outreach content demonstrate how PDB data impact fundamental biology, biomedicine, bioengineering/biotechnology, and energy sciences in 3D for a diverse and multidisciplinary user community. Education Materials provide lessons and activities for teaching and learning.
