In honor of the upcoming PDB40 symposium, October's Molecule of the Month looks at the structures available in the archive's early days: myoglobin, hemoglobin, lysozyme, carboxypeptidase, subtilisin, chymotrypsin, papain, pancreatic trypsin inhibitor, lactate dehydrogenase, rubredoxin, and cytochrome b5.

The PDB40 symposium will celebrate four decades of innovation in structural biology this fall at a Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory symposium honoring the PDB's 40th anniversary and the many scientific contributions it archives.

PDB40 will begin with an early evening reception, dinner, and oral session on Friday, October 28th and conclude with lunch on Sunday, October 30, 2011. Information about the meeting is available online at
