The Protein Data Bank in Europe (PDBe; http://pdbe.org/) offers a number of 
educational resources as part of its wider mandate for outreach and training 
within the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI; http://www.ebi.ac.uk/).

As part of this commitment, we offer the PDBe "roadshow" 
(http://pdbe.org/roadshow/), an event where members of the PDBe team travel to 
user institutes and conduct hands-on training sessions. These sessions 
typically include presentations and demonstrations of our advanced search and 
analysis tools. We also offer presentations on data validation, quality 
assessment and data deposition to the Protein Data Bank (PDB) using 
AutoDep4.0. These roadshows give users an opportunity to familiarise 
themselves with PDBe services and resources using tutorials and interactive 
teaching sessions so that they can use these effectively in their own 
research. The contents and duration of roadshows is always tailored to local 
circumstances and preferences (e.g., special emphasis on X-ray, EM or NMR 
deposition, or on advanced services like PDBeFold, PDBePisa and PDBeMotif).

In addition to the PDBe roadshow, we also offer educational resources online. 
These comprise introductory and advanced presentations of our services as well 
as a number of tutorials that use these services in a research-like setting - 
for further details see http://pdbe.org/teaching

We welcome the opportunity to visit your institute and conduct a PDBe 
roadshow. For more details on the options regarding duration and content of 
our roadshows, or to contact us to discuss the possibility of a roadshow at 
your institute, please see http://pdbe.org/roadshow
