JSB Special Issue on Outcomes of the Map and Model Challenges

We are pleased to announce that the Journal of Structural Biology has agreed to produce a special issue on the 2016 Map and Model Challenges.

For those planning to submit a manuscript, here are the particulars:

Joint Challenges Wrap-Up Meeting Oct 6-8

In 2016 EMDataBank ran two community challenges in parallel to create awareness of the need for cryoEM structure validation as a routine process in research studies and publications, and to expedite development of quantitative tools for assessment

Model Challenge Face-to-Face Meeting

Update for the Model Challenge: A face-to-face meeting was held Monday May 29, 2017 to discuss model assessments and how to move forward with completing the challenge.  The challenge has been designed to enable assessment of current approaches to interpretation of higher resolution (3-5Å) cryoEM maps with atomic models, to critically evaluate the map interpretation, model fitting, model refinement, and validation methods that are now coming into use. Initial assessments of the 106 submissions from 16 modellers have been prepared and can be viewed at the model comparison site.  Notes from the May 29 meeting are available in the provided attachment.
