== Objectives ==

The idea is to save raw diffraction data related to all PDB depositions from an institute or lab. Below is a list of what this project aims to achieve.

* Easy upload of data
* Mandatory metadata submission
* Off-site backup of data
* Easy download of data (download manager to restart interrupted downloads)
* Comparability – should automatic processing be run to provide datasets with comparable statistics?
* Secure storage with access level (public, password, temporary access, private) set by user.

Should each dataset get a digital object identifier (DOI)? What are the procedures to do that? If there was one, it should surely be linked to the PDB.

== Necessary metadata ==

To make data useful in the future, the following data should be associated with it:

* PDB code – this is the main connection with the PDB.
* Responsible crystallographer – whom to contact with technical questions
* Responsible PI – person who is ultimately responsible for data
* Publication details
* Data source – beamline where data were collected

It might be possible to extract many of these details from the headers of the image files or the PDB.

== People ==

This is a list of people who've shown interest in working on this project.

* Adam Ralph - Irish Centre for High End Computing
* Nicola McDonnell - Irish Centre for High End Computing
* Kashif Iqbal - Irish Centre for High End Computing
* Marco Grossi - Irish Centre for High End Computing
* [[Users:B5foan|Andreas Forster]] - Imperial College London
* Jon Agirre - York University

People to contact:

* Erica Yang and Brian Matthews at Rutherford might have solutions almost ready according to Martyn Winn

== Funding ==

Nothing is possible without money. Here are option for funding

* Horizon 2020 funding - One of the strands is Research Infrastructures.
* Instruct
* EUDAT - Martyn Winn says this is not a possibility.
