Synchrotrons are very good at archiving all collected data. In contrast, there's no requirement for including diffraction data when submitting a structure to the PDB. Consequently, the connection between structure and the underlying data is lost for all practical purposes.

Diffraction data storage solutions (2018)[edit | edit source]

There are many more local repositories, e.g. for universities.
