AutoDep, ADIT-NMR, EMDep Deposition Systems to Be
Retired, Effective 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. More than 14000 structures have been deposited,
annotated, and validated using this system, with more than 9000
structures already released into the PDB archive. The new system uses
the PDBx/mmCIF data format, 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.
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 BMRB and EMDB accession
Starting May 31st 2016, the legacy deposition systems, AutoDep, ADIT-NMR (BMRB|PDBj) and EMDep,
will no longer accept new PDB and EMDB submissions. Depositors with
in-progress sessions on the legacy systems will be able to access and
complete their deposition sessions until September 30th
An updated ADIT-NMR system (available from BMRB and PDBj-BMRB) will
continue to accept NMR data associated with a structure currently not
accepted by the unified wwPDB deposition system (for example, relaxation
data, and primary time-domain spectra) as well as experimental NMR data
not associated with the deposition of 3D coordinates.
