Virtual Crash Course: Exploring Computed Structure Models from Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning at


Thursday, September 22nd 2022 • 1:00-3:00 PM EDT

Registration (required):

More than 1 million Computed Structure Models (CSMs) from AlphaFold2 and RoseTTAFold are now being delivered simultaneously with ~200,000 experimentally-determined PDB structures via Learn how to search, visualize, and analyze CSMs alongside PDB structures using all of the same RCSB PDB features that you know and love.
