PDB Cell Parameter Search • PDB Percent Solvet Search • Matthews Coefficient Search

This server provides a method of searching the PDB (212,205 in our database, last updated Feb 28, 2024) for structures matching the selected criteria below. You may filter by Matthew's Coefficient, percent solvent, space group, cell volume, submission date, and cell parameters. You must check the parameter in order to make it an active filter. After your selection has been made, you may pick which parameter you would like to use to order the results.

• Only enter a value for a parameter if you want it included in the search.
Example: Enter 2.5 in the Matthews Coefficient field and click any where to see the number of hits. Then put >= 60% solvent to get the intersection of the 2. Scroll down to push the button to collect the structure information
