With the completion of a prototype of the shape-matching software, the BioMedBridges use case "From cells to molecules - integrating structural data" has completed a major milestone. In the first instance the prototype will perform volume matching on example datasets.
The service is novel in providing access to volume data, a growing class of structural biology data. Development work on the prototype has clarified the requirements for the web-based shape-matching service, which is scheduled to be launched in March 2015.
Feedback on the software from potential end users of the web-based service is welcome. Please contact Martyn Winn.
A detailed report on the milestone is available here.
