Improved Deposition for Cryo-Electron Microscopy
PDB deposition systems have been extended to accept data items specifically describing cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) methods, for those EM methods that generate fitted coordinates. These items were developed in collaboration with members of the cryo-EM community, the EBI-MSD group, and the PDB.
New versions of ADIT (http://pdb.rutgers.edu/adit/ and http://pdbdep.protein.osaka-u.ac.jp/adit/) and AutoDep (http://autodep.ebi.ac.uk) that support these new data items for cryo-EM depositions are available.
Further information about AutoDep is available at http://autodep.ebi.ac.uk/autodep-doc/html/release-notes.html.
ADIT users can now select from the X-ray, NMR, or Cryo-EM deposition views. Further information about ADIT is available at http://pdb.rutgers.edu/.
Cryo-EM data item definitions are available from the following sources:
