EMDB header format to be updated to v.1.9.0.

On 16 January 2013, the EMDB archive plans to adopt an updated format, v.1.9.0, for the entry header file (XML file associated with each map). This means that EMDB header files distributed from wwPDB partner sites will conform to the 1.9.0 format, and EMDataBank deposition/annotation/search services will start using this format.

We are announcing this planned change in advance so that developers can make any necessary modifications to software/services that make use of EMDB header files. Please contact us at with any questions or concerns.

The candidate schema is available for download here:
A complete list of changes can be found at the beginning of the schema file.

Example header files using the new format can be found here:

For more details about the schema change, see wwPDB News.
