EMXlib plugin

This plugin allows to import metadata to and from EMX format

Electron Microscopy eXchange (EMX) initiative was launched at the 2012 Instruct Image Processing Center Developer Workshop with the intention of developing a first set of standard conventions for the interchange of information for single-particle analysis (see URL and for details).
