The Worldwide Protein Data Bank (wwPDB) released to the community its 100,000th structure on May 14, 2014. Established in 1971, this central public archive of experimentally determined protein and nucleic acid structures has reached this important milestone thanks to the efforts of structural biologists throughout the world.
