The Protein Data Bank in Europe (PDBe; http://pdbe.org/) offers a number of 
educational resources as part of its wider mandate for outreach and training 
within the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI; http://www.ebi.ac.uk/).

As part of this commitment, we offer the PDBe "roadshow" 
(http://pdbe.org/roadshow/), an event where members of the PDBe team travel to 
user institutes and conduct hands-on training sessions. These sessions 
typically include presentations and demonstrations of our advanced search and 
analysis tools. We also offer presentations on data validation, quality 
assessment and data deposition to the Protein Data Bank (PDB) using AutoDep4.0. 
These roadshows give users an opportunity to familiarise themselves with PDBe 
services and resources using tutorials and interactive teaching sessions so 
that they can use these effectively in their own research. The contents and 
duration of roadshows is always tailored to local circumstances and preferences 
(e.g., special emphasis on X-ray, EM or NMR deposition, or on advanced services 
like PDBeFold, PDBePisa and PDBeMotif).

In addition to the PDBe roadshow, we also offer educational resources online. 
These comprise introductory and advanced presentations of our services as well 
as a number of tutorials that use these services in a research-like setting - 
for further details see http://pdbe.org/teaching

We welcome the opportunity to visit your institute and conduct a PDBe roadshow. 
For more details on the options regarding duration and content of our 
roadshows, or to contact us to discuss the possibility of a roadshow at your 
institute, please see http://pdbe.org/roadshow
