TARDIS article on P212121

The crystallography blog P212121 have posted an article on TARDIS  entitled “TARDIS for the Storage of X-ray Diffraction Images“.

This comes as a follow-up to their recent poll “Do we need an X-ray Diffraction Image Data Bank?“.

The poll is still open, but currently 81% of P212121 readers are voting for that the crystallography community does need an open, freely available diffraction image data bank.

Be sure to head over to P212121 and have your say.
