EMBL-EBI is a world-leader in archiving and disseminating 3D biomacromolecular and cellular structure data. The Cellular Structure & 3D Bioimaging team plays a key role in the dissemination of 3DEM data through the EMDB (emdb-empiar.org) and EMPIAR (empiar.org) public archives. We develop and provide advanced tools and web-resources for searching, analyzing and visualizing structural data for the benefit of structural biologists and the wider scientific community. The team consists of an international and inter-disciplinary mix of professionals (scientists and IT specialists) and we are looking to augment the team with a scientific programmer who can help develop and improve our EM validation resources.
The post holder will:
- contribute to the development of EM validation resources (e.g., EM validation reports and stand-alone validation web-services such as a map/model FSC server).
- in a joint project with Dr Garib Murshudov, MRC-LMB, perform structural data-mining of 3DEM maps in EMDB with the aim of deriving canonical 3D density motifs that can be used for validation and analysis.
