The Protein Data Bank is the single worldwide archive of primary structural data of biological macromolecules. This article introduces and describes the goals of the PDB, the systems in place for data deposition and access, how to obtain further information and plans for the future development of the resource.

Web-accessible resources derived from data in the Protein Data Bank are classified and described and URLs are given. They include resources on protein structure and functional classification, links to primary genomic information, protein–protein interactions, protein dynamics and protein-modeling resources.
