Plan to discontinue legacy formats and platforms

NMR-STAR v2.1 support will be discontinued

BMRB announces that the NMR-STAR v2.1 format will no longer be supported by BMRB after September 1, 2020. This will mean that all data from BMRB will be available in NMR-STAR versions 3.1 or higher. BMRB has been providing data in NMR-STAR v3.1 format for over ten years, and if you are not sure which version you are using, it is likely that you are already using v3.1 and that this change will not affect you. Users that need to convert older files to the new format, as well as developers whose software reads and/or writes NMR-STAR v2.1 files are invited to contact our help desk at for help and orientation on updating files and/or support for the new format. The NMR-STAR format has evolved over the years, with the current format having improved data organization, enhanced metadata support, expanded data content, and enriched inter-operation with closely related data resources like the wwPDB, of which BMRB is a Core Archive for NMR experimental data.

ADIT-NMR deposition tool to be discontinued

BMRB announces the planned discontinuation of the ADIT-NMR deposition system. Depositors with open depositions started on ADIT-NMR should finish them by September 1, 2020. ADIT-NMR will no longer allow new depositions to be started beginning June 1, 2020. Depositors are encouraged to start new depositions using BMRBdep.

BMRBdep provides a streamlined, more responsive deposition experience, as well as better support for depositors, with a familiar but cleaner interface. Please contact BMRB’s help desk at if you envision any problems with an open deposition due to this timeline.
