Paper Published: RCSB PDB Mobile


A new Bioinformatics paper describes how the iOS/Android app enables fast and convenient access to RCSB PDB data and services:  

RCSB PDB Mobile: iOS and Android mobile apps to provide data access and visualization to the RCSB Protein Data Bank
(2014) Bioinformatics doi:10.1093/bioinformatics/btu596.

This universal app enables the general public, researchers and scholars to search the PDB and visualize protein structures over a WiFi or cellular data connection.

Freely available for the iPhone/iPod/iPad and Android (2.3.3 and above), RCSB PDB Mobile can be used to search the entire PDB database, view the latest released structures, access  MyPDB accounts, and view the entire catalog of Molecule of the Month articles.

Interactive 3D visualization utilizes the program NDKMol (courtesy of Dr. Takanori Nakane, Kyoto University). Interactively view a molecule from by entering a PDB ID or launching the viewer from the search results. These views can be saved as images.

RCSB PDB Mobile can be downloaded from the Apple Store and Google play. All RCSB PDB publications are listed online.
