Dear all,

Have you ever wondered how many times your structures are mentioned in the
literature, even when your paper isn't cited (or when your structure hasn't
been published)? You can now find out easily on the redesigned and improved
PDBe website. We not only list the papers that have cited the paper in which
your structure was published, but also show you papers (provided they are
full-text open access) where the PDB code of your structure is mentioned but
your paper isn't cited.

For example, the zeta-crystallin structure solved by the SGC in 2004 hasn't
been published, but you can see on the PDBe entry page (http://pdbe.org/1yb5)
that five papers mention the PDB code of this structure.

This is just one of the many new features on the redesigned PDBe website that
we hope will help (structural) biologists find the information they need about
biomacromolecular structures and complexes available in PDB and EMDB. Explore
the website at http://pdbe.org/ and feel free to send us your comments through
the feedback feature.

Best wishes,
