“Report From Cryo-Electron Microscopy Structure Deposition Workshop”

Bridget Carragher, Associate Professor – Department of Cell Biology, The Scripps Research Institute

I will give a brief report back on the recent “Cryo-Electron Microscopy Structure Deposition Workshop” held at the RCSB Protein Data Bank in Rutgers University.  The purpose of this workshop was to discuss the deposition of 3D density maps and atomic models derived from cryo-electron microscopy studies.  We examined the current set of data items proposed for the database and looked at what is already being collected by EMDep (http://www.ebi.ac.uk/msd-srv/emdep/) at EBI and ADIT (http://deposit.pdb.org/adit/) at the RCSB.
