Proteopedia is a wiki, 3D encyclopedia of proteins and other molecules.[2][3][4][5] The site contains a page for every entry in the Protein Data Bank (>100,000 pages), as well as pages that are more descriptive of protein structures in general such as acetylcholinesterase,[6] hemoglobin,[7] and the photosystem II[8] with a Jmol view that highlights functional sites and ligands. It employs a scene-authoring tool so that users do not have to learn Jmol script language to create customized molecular scenes. Custom scenes are easily attached to "green links" in descriptive text that display those scenes in Jmol. A web browser is all that is needed to access the site and the 3D information; no viewers are required to be installed.

Proteopedia was the winner of the 2010 award for the best website by The Scientist magazine.[9]
