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

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  
click actions.

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.

Sincerely,

The Unified Data Resource for CryoEM Project Team
