The STARANISO Server
Anisotropy of the Diffraction Limit
"As a general rule when a deposition comes in where there has been additional processing of the structure factors we ask for either: the raw images to be deposited and the DOI provided to us or the structure factors prior to the additional processing to be added as a second datablock in the MTZ/mmCIF file.  This is to ensure that users have access to the data prior to the additional processing.  Currently STARANISO falls into this additional processing category, partly as it is new, but as techniques become used more widely we do review this and change our practice."
This is in fact the required merged data input to the STARANISO server.  Note particularly that it is a requirement of the server that no resolution cut-off of any kind is applied to the merged data before submission to the server, and we think this should also apply to PDB deposition, since such a cut-off surely falls into the category of "additional processing", and therefore requires that the data prior to such processing are deposited.
