From your own file system

A PDB file can also be imported from your own file system using the standard import function:

        Toolbar | Import (Image Next_Folder_16_h_p) | Standard Import (Image Next_Folder_16_h_p)

In the Import dialog, select the structure(s) of interest from a data location and tick "Automatic import" (figure 17.2). Specify where to save the imported PDB file and click Finish.

Double clicking on the imported file in the Navigation Area will open the structure as a Molecule Project in the View Area of the CLC Genomics Workbench. Another option is to drag the PDB file from the Navigation Area to the View Area. This will automatically open the protein structure as a Molecule Project.
