As of 2009, the Protein Data Bank (PDB) had almost 53,000 three-dimensional structures of protein molecules and nucleic acids.
In fact, of the 1,273 structures submitted to the Protein Data Bank in the first quarter of 2004, 84% were the result of x-ray crystallography experiments and only 13% of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, the other major technique for determining molecular structures.
