Data management challenges in three-dimensional EM

Nat Struct Mol Biol. 2012 Dec;19(12):1203-7. doi: 10.1038/nsmb.2426.


This report describes the outcomes of the Data Management Challenges in 3D Electron Microscopy workshop. Key topics discussed include data models, validation and raw-data archiving. The meeting participants agreed that the EMDataBank should take the lead in addressing these issues, and concrete action points were agreed upon that will have a substantial impact on the accessibility of three-dimensional EM data in biology and medicine.
