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.

Map Challenge: Data Released!

Several updates for the map challenge:

Map Challenge Assessment Update

Map Challenge Assessors:

  • If you have not yet completed your analysis, the deadline for submitting assessment reports is now end of April (April 30). After that time we will be releasing the masked software/submitter info.
  • We are working on the planning for a two day face-to-face discussion of assessment results, and are considering several possible dates/locations either over the summer or (more likely) in September.
  • Following the workshop each assessor/assessment group will have the opportunity to publish their findings in a journal special issue.
