floorplan for our

Virtual Protein Museum

More information on each protein is available at the RCSB Protein Data Bank.

Museum Exhibits:

Interesting Structures:

You'll be amazed at what structures actually exist at the molecular scale. Yes, each of these structures is real! Step inside for a closer look.


Molecular Machines:

These mighty miniature motors convert chemical energy to mechanical work! See proteins that walk or can move huge masses.



We can perform reactions in our bodies that require harsh conditions in the macro world. Did you ever wonder how we can extract energy from food at much higher efficiency than an automobile, yet we are able to operate at a much lower temperature? You can thank enzymes for this and much, much more.


Exhibits under construction:

Here you will find beautiful proteins which have not yet found a finished exhibit home.
