Depositing Data? Use the wwPDB Deposition & Annotation System


The new wwPDB Deposition & Annotation system is open for X-ray crystallographic structure depositions at

Features of the new system include:

  • New data format: Extensible, dictionary-driven PDBx/mmCIF produces more uniform data across the archive
  • Deposition efficiency: ability to replace coordinate and/or experimental data files pre- and post- submission
  • Enhanced communication: 'In context' correspondence with wwPDB annotators and ability to preview and download processed files post-submission
  • Improved annotation: Improved ligand chemistry and polymer sequence checks with visual inspection provided during deposition
  • Validation: Geometry and experimental data checking during deposition and annotation is based on Task Force expert recommendations
