Uppsala Electron Density Server to be retired

Electron density for retinoic acid in PDB entry 1CBS
13 December 2016

After  serving the scientific community with electron-density maps for two decades, the Uppsala Electron Density Server (EDS; http://eds.bmc.uu.se/) is now reaching the end of its life cycle and will be retired some time in 2017. The good news is that much of the EDS functionality (and in particular the delivery of map and mtz files, as well as a much better 3D viewer) is now provided by PDBe.

There is a short write-up that explains what this means for users who just want to look at maps, for users who want to download files, for users of software that retrieves data from EDS, and for developers of such software (incl. URLs for map, mtz and other relevant files on the PDBe website) at: http://www.ebi.ac.uk/pdbe/eds
