The Protein Data Bank (PDB) was established at Brookhaven National Laboratories in 1971 as an archive for biological macromolecular crystal structures. Originally, it contained only 7 structures; today it holds over 109,000 3D structures for large biological molecules, including proteins and nucleic acids. In October 1998, the management of the PDB became the responsibility of the Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics (RCSB), a consortium composed of Rutgers State University, the State University of New Jersey, the University of California at San Diego, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). This analysis examines the impact of the most highly cited NIST-authored paper, The Protein Data Bank, published in Nucleic Acids Research in 2000. This poster illustrates the impact of this article using various data visualization tools.
