This document analyses current and emerging usage of structural biology data in the context of different biomedical Research Infrastructures (RIs). It is produced by West-Life as Deliverable 3.5 in close collaboration with other RIs and, specifically, in the context of the European Union CORBEL project (http://www.corbel-project.eu, CORBEL “Coordinated Research Infrastructures Building Enduring Life-science Services”).
Structural data, especially in the form of sets of atomic coordinates, are considered by all RIs in the Biomedical arena as very relevant, especially for ELIXIR, Euro-BioImaging and EU-OPENSCREEN. Specific coordination actions among these RIs may provide new synergies to be considered in current and future RI integration projects, such as CORBEL. Another area worth of exploration is the coordination of Instruct-ERIC and other biomedical research infrastructures to fulfil EOSC vision; in this context is particularly important to draw the attention of all biomedical RIs on the coming call of projects under INFRAEOSC-04-2018: Connecting ESFRI infrastructures through Cluster projects.
