|MIME type: chemical/x-pdb|
Protein Data Bank PDB files.
3D molecular model file.
Used in bioinformatics applications and on the web for storing and exchanging molecule models.
PDB is an acronym for Protein Data Bank.
Plain text format.
Stores structure information for large biological molecules such as proteins and nucleic acids.
Does not store chemical bond information.
Developed in 1971 at Brookhaven National Laboratory.
Maintained by the Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics (RCSB).
