Retirement of SOAP Services


Effective early December 2013, RCSB PDB SOAP Web Services will be retired. Developers still using SOAP services are asked to transition to the equivalent and easier to use RESTful Web Services.

The RESTful API offers:

  • Generic query to execute any search available on the website as a web service call.
  • Custom report service which offers a flexible way to return data in CSV, Excel, and XML format.
  • Several specialized services to retrieve information about the status and description of PDB entries, chemical components, and sequence-based mappings.

Please contact us for any assistance with the transition from SOAP to RESTful.
