As I mentioned in my previous post, the Protein Data Bank (PDB) is not only a worldwide structural database but also an incredible resourceful educational toolkit. On the website is available the aforementioned Molecule of the Month, as well as:
- flyers, posters, calendars and other resources (In 2018 learn every month about antimicrobial resistance – It is expected that antibiotic-resistant bacteria will be the leading cause of death around the globe [predicted death rate of 10 million people annually by 2050])
- coloring books, and much more!

For the last two years, the team of the European PDB, the PDBe, is working with local school art departments to inspire students to explore the database, discuss it with scientists and create their own artistic interpretations of the structures.
