EMDep, AutoDep, ADIT Deposition Systems to Be Retired, Effective September 30th 2016
Starting May 31st 2016, the legacy deposition systems EMDep, AutoDep, and EM-ADIT will no longer accept new EMDB and PDB submissions. Depositors with in-progress sessions on the legacy systems will be able to access and complete their deposition sessions until September 30th 2016.
In January 2014, the wwPDB launched a unified deposition, annotation, and validation system (RCSB PDB | PDBe | PDBj) for structures determined using X-ray crystallography. An extended version of the unified wwPDB deposition, annotation, and validation system supporting structures determined by X-ray crystallography, NMR, and 3D EM was launched January 8th 2016. The extended system is integrated with the repositories for NMR and 3D EM experimental data and can assign both EMDB and BMRB accession codes. The new system, which produces more uniform data, supports replacement of data files pre- and post-deposition, enhances communication with depositors, enables improved annotation, and provides validation reports based on recommendations from wwPDB expert task forces. Improvements to this system are regularly incorporated in response to user feedback. Detailed information and video tutorials are available.
Questions/comments on the new system should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
