Storage of diffraction data
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
- zenodo.org (including https://zenodo.org/communities/mx/?page=1&size=20 but maybe other "communities"); this is managed by CERN
- SBGrid https://data.sbgrid.org/ - see https://www.nature.com/articles/ncomms10882
- proteindiffraction.org (this has e.g. almost? all the JCSG data!)
- Australian synchrotron.store - see https://store.synchrotron.org.au and http://scripts.iucr.org/cgi-bin/paper?S1399004714016174
- the ESRF makes all collected data available after 3 years; see http://www.esrf.eu/datapolicy
There are many more local repositories, e.g. for universities.
