STEP 1: Please identify yourself

Below you have the option to register as an academic/governmental or a commercial user. The PDBbind database, including its downloadable contents, is free of charge for researchers working for academic, governmental, or other non-profit institutions under a license agreement. For researchers working for for-profit companies, the University of Michigan requires a commercial license agreement and a moderate amount of subscription fee before they can legally access the PDBbind database.


Upon your choice, you will be directed to the corresponding license agreement. Academic/governmental users may complete their registrations right on our web site by following the instructions. Requests from commercial users will be processed by our representative at the Technology Transfer Office of the University of Michigan. 


Any user may log in our web server through a demo account. To do so, just go to the "Login" page. A default account and password has already been set. This demo account has limited access to the contents of the PDBbind database though.
