MyTardis is a multi-institutional collaborative venture that facilitates the archiving and sharing of data and metadata collected at major facilities such as the Australian Synchrotron and ANSTO and within Institutions.
An example of the benefit of a system such as MyTardis in the protein crystallography community is that while the model coordinates and (less often) the structure factors (processed experimental data) are stored in the community Protein Data Bank (PDB) the raw diffraction data is often not available. There are several reasons why this is important, which can be summarised as:
- The availability of raw data is extremely useful for the development of improved methods of image analysis and data processing.
- Fostering the archival of raw data at an institutional level is one the best ways of ensuring that this data is not lost (laboratory archives are typically volatile).

The default branch on GitHub is
develop. This is the cutting edge
development version. Please DO NOT use this in production, as it may have bugs
that eat your data.
master branch is the current stable release with all the latest bugfixes
included. It will move to newer versions automatically. Follow this branch
if you want to stay up to date in a production environment.
Each version has its own branch named by version number. At the time of
writing this is
3.7. Follow this branch for your production installation and
perform version upgradres manually.
Each bugfix or set of fixes bumps the minor version and each new release is
3.7.2. Use tagged releases if you are paranoid about changes to
the code you have not tested yourself.
To follow development, please see the contributing section below.
Bug reports and feature requests can be made via our public issue tracker.
New contributors are always welcome, however all developers should review the pull-request checklist before making pull requests.
For any wishes, comments, praise etc. either open a GitHub issue or contact us.
Active developers are also welcome to join our Slack team.
