Enhanced Validation of Small-Molecule Ligands and Carbohydrates
A new article in Structure describes new features, including branched representations and 2D SNFG images for carbohydrates, identification of ligands of interest, 3D views of electron density fit, and 2D images of small molecule geometry.
These enhancements and processes for validation of 3D small-molecular structures reflect recommendations from the wwPDB/CCDC/D3R Ligand Validation Workshop and the adoption of software through community collaborations.
This manuscript also highlights enhancements made since the initial implementation of Validation Reports as described in Validation of the Structures in the Protein Data Bank (2017) Structure 25: 1916-1927 doi: 10.1016/j.str.2017.10.009.
