The wwPDB partners have joined forces in creating the next generation of PDB deposition and annotation tools, OneDep. This system created to enhance the wwPDB's ability to meet the evolving deposition requirements from the scientific community over the next decade. The system unifies the deposition and annotation systems across all wwPDB deposition centers and focuses on improving data quality and completeness in the PDB archive, while supporting growth in the number of depositions and increases in size and complexity of the structures deposited.
The latest version of the Deposition Tool interoperates with EMDB and BMRB to enable joint depositions of atomic coordinates (PDB) and electron density maps (EMDB) or NMR experimental data (BMRB). At the time of submission, PDB and EMDB/BMRB accession codes will be issued simultaneously.
