Validation Tools

Depositors of protein depositions are strongly encouraged to use the various validation software listed below to check their NMR experimental data and structure files before uploading them.

Validation reports

Validation reports: collections of AVS, LACS, and SPARTA generated files for published BMRB entries

Pre-deposition data validation services

wwPDB ValidationService will check your model and experimental files prior to submitting a structure to wwPDB.

Protein Structure Validation Suite (PSVS) is a useful tool for the assessment of protein structures generated by NMR and X-ray methods. PSVS is broadly applicable for structure quality assessment in structure biology projects.

Downloadable data validation software

LACS 64-bit linux binary (requires Matlab runtime), Matlab source code, and python wrappers. (Reference: PubMed.)

Wattos is a software package consisting of programs for analyzing, annotating, parsing, archiving, and disseminating experimental NMR data deposited by authors world wide into the PDB.
