This is the protein crystal databank (RCSB) not to be confused with the cambridge structural database (CSD). RCSB allows free access to its structural data while CSD does not.

Advanced users will benefit from this site that provides detailed information
about protein structure. It is probably best suited for upper-division and
graduate courses. Faculty and students can use this data bank for viewing
current protein information or submitting new information to the site.
