This page has not been maintained since 2013, so it is now merely historical record.

To see what is new, please visit Special:Newpages, which is automatically generated, and includes the pages for new PDB entries seeded by the OCA robot as well as pages authored by users. To find pages on a particular subject, use the search slot at left.

What's New in Proteopedia?
This page lists new pages, substantially updated pages, and new capabilities within Proteopedia. In contrast, Proteopedia:News lists external news such as adoptions, blogs, press, meetings, seminars and workshops about Proteopedia.

A major purpose of this page is to make it easier for users to find out about new user-created pages with substantial content. Only user-created pages that have substantial content (at least one paragraph of user-added text with three or more green links), and that are reasonably complete should be listed below. Pages that are started, but not yet completed, should not be listed until they are reasonably complete. Automatically seeded new pages, titled with PDB codes, are not listed here[1]. Minor updates to existing pages should not be listed.

Please add new items at the top. If a linked page is not new, but has been updated with substantial new content, please say so. Each page's history tab (at the top) shows when it was created and the date of each update.

The left arrow symbol (<-) signifies a page that redirects to another page.

Because this page is maintained manually, the lists for recent months are usually incomplete. There are typically other new articles that are not yet listed. You may also wish to consult Topic pages (also maintained manually); Special:Newpages which is automatically generated, but includes the pages for new PDB entries seeded by the OCA robot; or all pages whose titles do not begin with a numeral (thus excluding pages titled with PDB codes, but not limited to new pages).
