Image processing

ProcessingMethod: subtomogram averaging / Applied symmetry: C1 (asymmetric)
Details: Frames were aligned using K2Align software, based off the MotionCorr algorithm. Tomograms were reconstructed with IMOD, using stripwise CTF-correction and weighted back projection. Subtomogram averaging was performed using scripts derived from TOM, AV3, and DYNAMO.
3D reconstructionAlgorithm: BACK PROJECTION / Software: AV3
CTF correction: CTF amplitude correction was performed during the wedge-weighted subtomogram averaging step.
Resolution: 6.6 Å / Resolution method: FSC 0.143 CUT-OFF
Details: Local resolution was estimated using moving window FSC calculations.
Euler angles: Iterative angular search was performed via maximization of a modified constrained cross-correlation function.

About Yorodumi


Oct 4, 2017. Three pioneers of this field were awarded Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2017

Three pioneers of this field were awarded Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2017

  • Jacques Dubochet (University of Lausanne, Switzerland) is a pioneer of ice-embedding method of EM specimen (as known as cryo-EM), Most of 3DEM structures in EMDB and PDB are obtained using his method.
  • Joachim Frank (Columbia University, New York, USA) is a pioneer of single particle reconstruction, which is the most used reconstruction method for 3DEM structures in EMDB and EM entries in PDB. And also, he is a develper of Spider, which is one of the most famous software in this field, and is used for some EM Navigor data (e.g. map projection/slice images).
  • Richard Henderson (MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge, UK) was determined the first biomolecule structure by EM. The first EM entry in PDB, PDB-1brd is determinedby him.

Jul 12, 2017. Major update of PDB

Major update of PDB

  • wwPDB released updated PDB data conforming to the new PDBx/mmCIF dictionary. This is a major update changing the version number from 4 to 5, and with Remediation, in which all the entries are updated. See below links for details.
  • In this update, many items about electron microscopy experimental information are reorganized (e.g. em_software). Now, EM Navigator and Yorodumi are based on the updated data.
