Validation Server

Validation Tutorial | Possible Format Problems

The ADIT Validation Server allows the user to check the format consistency of coordinates (PRECHECK) and to create validation reports about a structure before deposition (VALIDATION). These checks can be done independently by the user.

To start a new validation session, select the experimental method (X-ray or NMR) from the pull-down menu below, and press the BEGIN button.


After submitting your coordinates (and structure factor files, if applicable) you will receive a comprehensive summary report.
Examine this RCSB Validation summary letter carefully, since it may indicate outstanding issues that will delay deposition of your coordinates to the PDB.
