In structural biology, deriving and refining atomic models into maps obtained from X-ray crystallography or cryo electron microscopy (cryo-EM) is essential for the detailed interpretation of a structure and its functional implications through interactions so that for example hydrogen bonds, drug specificity and associated molecular mechanisms can be analysed. This commentary summarizes the latest features of the Phenix software and also highlights the fact that cryo-EM increasingly contributes to data depositions in the PDB and EMDB.
