In 2014 Andrii Iudin joined the Cellular Structure and 3D Bioimaging team of Molecular and Cellular Structure (MCS) cluster at EMBL-EBI to work on EMPIAR. Andrii is responsible for maintaining, developing and extending the EMPIAR entry pages, the API and the deposition and annotation system.
Molecular and Cellular Structure cluster
Molecular and Cellular Structure cluster aims to bring structure to biology and to biologists by making this complex field more accessible to non-specialists. The teams in the MCS cluster are involved in managing three of the major archives in structural biology: the Protein Data Bank (PDB), the Electron Microscopy Data Bank (EMDB) and the Electron Microscopy Public Image Archive (EMPIAR).
The work on EMPIAR is funded by a project grant awarded to PDBe by MRC and BBSRC (MOL2CELL; grant MR/L007835). It further benefits from funding from the Wellcome Trust and EMBL-EBI to PDBe.
