Search for structures by the name of an author of the PDB entry or the associated primary citation.
All PDB entries contain the name(s) of one or more authors that submitted the entry to the PDB. These names are in the AUTHOR record of the PDB
file and in the _audit_author.name field in the mmCIF file. In addition, most entries list a primary citation, whose authors are in the JRNL AUTH
record in the PDB file and in the _citation_author.name field in the mmCIF file. In many structures, these two sets of author names are the same,
but they can differ.
The Author Name search can search either or both of these author name fields. Citation author searches are limited to the primary citation.
Names should be entered either as last name only or in the form "last name, initial(s)"
The "Exact Match" option determines whether the name, including any initials, typed into the search has to exactly match the full author name.
For example, if a last name and just one initial is typed into the search box, the results will include all author names with that last name
as long as one of their initials matches the one specified.
