Assessment Phases are Coming Soon

Following two amazing challenge submission finishes in April (66 maps!) and in June (106 models!), we have been working with our respective committees to prepare and organize the data for blinded assessments and to perform preliminary analyses. This process has taken more time than originally anticipated, so we have been making adjustments to assessment phase timelines. For the map challenge, we plan to announce the beginning of the assessment phase in early November.  Watch this space for more details! 

Model Challenge Submission Deadline is Friday June 17

EMDataBank Challenge Modellers, Please complete your model submissions this week--the deadline is this coming Friday at 21:00 UTC. Any questions/issues please let us know (challenges@emdatabank.org). Thanks for participating!

Model Challenge: Symmetry Info Updated

The model challenge guide now holds corrected symmetry center info and BIOMT matrices for the proteasome, GroEL, and β-galactosidase targets. The changes are highlighted with red text and update date.

The previously posted symmetry info had used rounded values for the voxel sizes, yielding inprecise center coordinate and matrix element values. We apologize for the errors.

Model Challenge Submission Deadline Extended

The deadline for model challenge submissions is now changed to Friday June 17 (21:00 UTC).

We hope that this extension will be helpful to all of our challengers.

In addition, please be aware that indicated symmetry centers in the model challenge guide may not be exact. 
This issue was just raised by one participant—we are investigating and will send a further update about this soon.

Further note (4/28): symmetry issue has been resolved
