Protein Modeling at Science Olympiad
The Protein Modeling event was developed as a formal collaboration between MSOE and RCSB PDB. Learn more about the regional, state, and national events, sponsored by 3D Molecular Designs and Vertex.
PDB-101 helps teachers, students, and the general public explore the 3D world of proteins and nucleic acids. Learning about their diverse shapes and functions helps to understand all aspects of biomedicine and agriculture, from protein synthesis to health and disease to biological energy.
Why PDB-101? Researchers around the globe make these 3D structures freely available at the Protein Data Bank (PDB) archive. PDB-101 builds introductory materials to help beginners get started in the subject ("101", as in an entry level course) as well as resources for extended learning.
