The PDB saw an extremely high and broad interest in Biotechnology at the BIO2000 meeting held in Boston, Massachusetts during March 26-30. The anticipated attendance of 5000 soared to over 10,000, focusing on industry and business. The Protein Data Bank (PDB) was featured at an exhibit booth.
Many visitors to the booth saw the PDB website for the first time. A variety of users, including students, professors, pharmaceutical company representatives, and software developers, were impressed with the amount of free information and the simplicity of access to the data.
