EMDB Weekly Release Cycle
You may have noticed that the emdatabank.org site is updated on a weekly basis. EMDB's weekly release cycle is also now synchronized with the wwPDB release cycle (see wwPDB news item "Coordinated Release of wwPDB data" 16-December-2009). Maps queued for release before Thursday at 16:00 GMT will be available on EMDB ftp sites on the following Wednesday at 00:00 GMT. As a result of synchronization, related EM map and coordinate entries held for publication by EMDB and PDB will usually be released at the same time.
