JCSG Data Archives

JCSG Repository of Crystallographic Datasets


The Joint Center for Structural Genomics has created a unique repository of X-ray crystallographic datasets for the structures that it has solved and deposited in the Protein Data Bank. This archive contains the experimental data and analyses from the data collection, data reduction, phasing, density modification, model building and refinement of JCSG structures. It also includes full sets of diffraction images for each of our deposited structures, enabling complete reconstruction of the data processing. In most cases, phasing was carried out either by SeMet, MAD or Molecular Replacement.   These datasets are freely available to the scientific community for developing and testing new algorithms and benchmarking and teaching.
