The Cell Centered Database (CCDB)
is a web accessible database for high resolution 2D, 3D and 4D data from
light and electron microscopy, including correlated imaging. Techniques
range from wide field mosaics taken with multiphoton microscopy to 3D
reconstructions of cellular ultrastructure using electron tomography...
New electron tomography datasets released!
The CCDB has recently released 7 new electron tomography datasets and one electron microscopic mosaic from two recently published studies. more...
The CCDB is participating in several
large scale information projects to develop and utilize ontologies and
spatial reference systems for data mining and data federation. The CCDB
is utilizing ontologies to link data across scales and modalities. Additional
details may be found by visiting
We have developed the Subcellular Anatomy Ontology (SAO) for the
nervous system to provide a formal ontology to describe structures
from the dimensional range known as the “mesoscale,” encompassing
cellular and subcellular structure, supracellular domains, and

The CCDB is developing "MyCCDB" for
comprehensive management of 2D, 3D, and 4D light and electron microscopy
data through a secure web portal. With an account to MyCCDB, users can
manage their own data through the web using the CCDB's powerful search
and display capabilities...
MyCCDB will provide a personalized secure web-based portal for accessing, uploading
and managing data through the CCDB. We are in the process of building the customized
interface. In the meanwhile, you are free to preview MyCCDB through NCMIR's Telescience
