New PDB Features

The Swiss-PdbViewer and new external links are now available from the Structure Explorer page for each PDB entry.

The Swiss-PdbViewer is now included as an option in the View Structure section of Structure Explorer pages on the PDB beta Web site. This molecular graphics viewing program allows users to load and display several molecules simultaneously, create layered image files, and more. Instructions for downloading and configuring the Swiss-PdbViewer can be found at http://www.rcsb.org/pdb/help-graphics.html#spdbv_download.

New external links to PDBsum, CATH, and SCOP are now accessible from the Summary Information section of the Structure Explorer pages on the PDB Web site and its mirrors. Additionally, external links to analysis resources, such as Contacts of Structural Units, are now available from the Geometry section of the Structure Explorer pages on these sites.
