2014 Annual Report

When the PDB archive was established in 1971, it contained seven structures. In 2014, the PDB passed the milestone of making more than 100,000 structures publicly available for scientific research and education. To commemorate this special milestone, RCSB PDB released an updated version of the iconic poster Molecular Machinery: A Tour of the Protein Data Bank as well as a related interactive display. This cover highlights a portion of that poster.
