GetStructure is a simple application to download PDB, MMCIF, and MTZ files if available for a given PDB code. The downloads are from the RCSB servers.

Input for the application is the 4 character PDB code identifying the structure. All above formats will be downloaded if available.


On macOS, the user has to install openSSL 1.1 for the application to work. To install openssl on macOS we recommend using HomeBrew (https://brew.sh/), and the command: brew install openssl@1.1

GetStructure on RedHat 9 is not being supported at this time due to an incompatibility with openSSL 1.1
