Submitting data to the PDB and EMDB

Submitting to PDB

Scientific journals require authors of structural biology papers to submit their molecular structure data to the PDB. AutoDep is our web-based tool for the submission of X-ray crystallography and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy structures and data to the PDB and BMRB. Following deposition, expert curators process the submission and send back the completed entry, normally within two working days.

Submitting to EMDB

EMDep is a web-based tool that facilitates the submission of data to the Electron Microscopy Data Bank (EMDB), an archive of high-resolution 3D cryo-electron microscopy data. EMDB contains 3D maps (volumes), masks, images and bibliographic citations, as well as processed primary data where appropriate. As with submissions to the PDB, you obtain a unique identifying code for each submission and you can choose whether to release the data immediately or upon publication in a journal. The deposition system allows you to deposit 3D maps to EMDB and associated coordinate data to the PDB.
