The October 2015 release offers the following features:
Redesigned Structure Summary Page
Improved Literature Tab
Better Support for Mobile Browsing
Redesigned Ligand Summary Page
The Structure Summary page has been redesigned with high level information available for each PDB entry, including structure classification, expression organism, and mutations. More detailed information about macromolecules, small molecules and experimental data and validation appear lower in the page.
Structure Summary pages incorporate "responsive" design that can adjust the layout for mobile devices such as phones and tablets.
The dedicated mobile app RCSB PDB Mobile, is also available from the Apple Store and Google Play.
The new Literature Tab lists articles from the PubMedCentral Open Access Subset that contain PDB IDs in the full text article ("Data Mentions"). For each article, the sentence(s) containing the PDB ID are listed. Articles titles can be filtered by keywords and sorted by year. Data Mentions are text-mined using software developed by the BioCADDIE project.
