Q) When are PDB entries released or updated? Can I download exactly the same PDB data from RCSB PDB, PDBe or PDBj? Is the update schedule different among them?
A) PDB entries are released/updated every Wednesday at 9:00 a.m.
Click on the link "xxxx entries available" on the right side of PDBj web pages to jump to PDB Update Information. Newly released and updated PDB entries will be displayed.
The update schedules for three sites, RCSB PDB, PDBe and PDBj, have been coordinated to be simultaneous. All updates now occur at the target time of Wednesday 00:00 UTC, which corresponds to 9:00 a.m. in JST.
RCSB PDB, PDBj and PDBe maintain exactly the same PDB data.
