The aim of this project is to make access to crystal structure data as easy as possible.
A huge amount of empirical crystallographic information was collected during decades and it is crucial for chemist, biologists, physicists, materials scientists as well as for engineers. The data is scattered in multiple databases, while the best ones are not free. Straightforward access and efficient search in large arrays of data is a necessary part of the scientific infrastructure, which is beneficial to everyone and stimulate the scientific and technological advances.
This project aims improvements of this infrastructure and as a first step, a web-interface is created for search in the Crystallography Open Database (COD).
We hope that the project will evolve with the help of our emerging community.
If you are interested in cooperation or just would express your vision regarding the development of the project, please, do not hesitate to contact us.
