English (USA)

Discussion relating to a Consortium on Management of Experimental Data in Structural Biology (MEDSBIO) which will:

1. Collaboratively resolve the interface issues among multiple structural biology data management protocols, including imgCIF, NeXuS, vendor data formats, instrument control and signalling protocols, local and remote experiment control protocols, etc. with the objective of making the collection, transfer and archiving of data for experiments in structural biology as efficient as practicable.

2. Maintain an archive of documentation on standards and proposals for ontologies, software, hardware specifications, web templates and other documentation related to such protocols.

3. Maintain an archive of open source software related to such protocols.

4. Maintain a archive of samples and test cases related to such protocols.

5. Run annual workshops on issues relating to such protocols (starting with our 2006-2007 workshop)

6. Contribute open source software to fill gaps in the infrastructure related to such protocol.

7. Gather and where necessary create curricular material to assist in training experimenter in issues related to such protocols.
