      Hi all,

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

      Today a new episode of Quips was released, about the structure of the
      receptor-binding region of gp37 from bacteriophage T4 and its probable
      interaction with one of the receptors on the bacterial host's outer membrane.
      This episode of Quips was produced together with Mark van Raaij. The
      accompanying mini-tutorial shows how the iron coordination in gp37 can be
      analysed using the PDBeMotif (pdbe.org/motif) service.

      To access this Quips episode, point your browser at:

      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@...
