Paper - Electron Microscopy Holdings of the Protein Data Bank

Electron Microscopy Holdings of the Protein Data Bank

From Biophysical Reviews, Stephen K. Burley et al. describe the history of the PDB and Worldwide Protein Data Bank partnership and present a review that "examines the origins of the resolution revolution and analyzes its impact on structural biology viewed through the lens of PDB holdings." They go on to discuss "Six areas of focus exemplifying the impact of 3DEM across the biosciences, followed by a review of 3DEM structure validation by the wwPDB that underscores the importance of community engagement."

Return of the Rectangular Dryshipper Shipping Case

Earlier this year the rectangular shipping case for the CX100 and CXR100 dryshipper became unavailable. This was one of the most popular products we offered as many customer preferred it to other shipping cases. The shipping case is now available again. You have your choice of just the shipping case or the shipping case with CX100. The shipping case helps protect your dryshipper during shipping.
