In June 1999, staff of the Macromolecular Structure Database (MSD; nowadays 
known as the Protein Data Bank in Europe, http://pdbe.org/) at the European 
Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI; http://www.ebi.ac.uk/) began annotating 
PDB entries. Now, eleven years later, PDBe has annotated its 10,000th 
structure, 2YF6 (http://pdbe.org/2yf6). This structure is of a chicken 
MHC/peptide complex and was determined in the group of Susan Lea at the 
University of Oxford.

You can read more about this milestone in the Wellcome Trust blog at 

This month's episode of Quips is also dedicated to 2YF6 - see 

For some early history of MSD/PDBe, see 

We are grateful to all the structural biologists who have deposited their 
structures with PDBe and look forward to annotating the next 10,000 entries!
