We are pleased to announce improvements to EM Databank deposition and
retrieval services hosted by PDBe (Europe) and RCSB PDB (USA).
Joint Map + Model Deposition
Map deposition has been integrated with fitted coordinate model
deposition to the PDB. Upon completion of an EMDEP3 map deposition
session, the user is presented with the option to deposit one or more
coordinate models to the PDB using AUTODEP (PDBe) or ADIT (RCSB PDB).
Experiment-related metadata is automatically transferred to the PDB
coordinate deposition session.
EMViewer, a 3D java map viewer, is now accessible from EMDB atlas
visualization pages at both sites. Clicking on the "Launch EMViewer"
button will bring up a simple representation of the map displayed at
a single isocontour level that can be manipulated by mouse drag and
The EMDB contains more than 600 experimentally determined three-
dimensional maps and associated experimental data and files, and is
funded by NIH GM079429 to Baylor College of Medicine, Rutgers
University, and the European Bioinformatics Institute, and EU Sixth
Framework Programme 3D-EM Network of Excellence contract LSHG-
CT-2004-502828 to EBI.
