RCSB Protein Data Bank resources for structure-facilitated design of mRNA vaccines for existing and emerging viral pathogens
(2022) Structure 30: P55-68.e2 doi: 10.1016/j.str.2021.10.008

In this article, David S. Goodsell and Stephen K. Burley examine the structural biology underpinning the success of SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccines and present freely available resources at the RCSB Protein Data Bank that could guide the structure-facilitated design of new countermeasures against existing and emerging viral pathogens.

2022: Revolutionizing Structural Biology with 3DEM

3D electron microscopy (3DEM) is revolutionizing the field of structural biology. This technique has become the method of choice for determining structures of large macromolecular complexes. Thanks to recent advances in sample preservation, microscopy, and computing, it’s also increasingly used for smaller structures.

This calendar features twelve molecular assemblies studied by 3DEM that further our understanding of biology and serve as a gateway to advances in technology and medicine. Download the PDF from PDB-101.
