Play the Bound! Protein-Drug Card Game
Bound! is a card game for students 12 and up where players compete to match the most drugs to their protein targets. The cards can be also used to play various memory games.
This game is a collaboration between two data resources: RCSB Protein Data Bank (RCSB PDB) and the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD), which is curated by the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC).
Each of the protein target cards shows one structure from the PDB, while each of the drug cards shows one structure from the CSD. PDB-101 hosts detailed information about each pair, along with structure details and 3D views for the cards highlighted in the game, as well as a collection of materials exploring Drug Action.
Additional information about the featured drugs is available at CCDC.
Cards can be downloaded as PDFs for printing or ordered online from MakePlayingCards.com.
