Hi all,

As many of you know by now, the Protein Data Bank in Europe (PDBe; 
http://pdbe.org) regularly produces Quips, short interactive stories about 
QUite Interesting Pdb Structures (http://pdbe.org/quips). Quips articles 
address biologically interesting aspects of one or more PDB entries from a 
structural perspective, using animated and interactive graphics views and 
usually a mini-tutorial or suggestions for further exploration using PDBe 
tools, services and resources.

Today a new interactive Quips story was released, exploring the structure of 
bacterial polymerase III and in particular the beta-clamp and its interaction 
with DNA. The accompanying mini-tutorial shows how you can explore a structure 
further and produce your own customised views using the OpenAstexViewer (which 
is used in Quips for 3D animations and graphics).

To access this Quips episode, point your browser at: 
http://pdbe.org/quips?story=BetaClamp

To go straight to the OpenAstexViewer tutorial, surf to:

There is also an RSS feed that informs you whenever there is a new Quips 
article available. For links to this and several other feeds, see 
http://pdbe.org/rss

If you have an interesting structure whose story you would like to tell (with 
our help) in the form of a Quips article, please contact us at pdbe from ebi.ac.uk
