Synopsis page
The '''ValidatorDB''' synopsis page contains a brief description of '''ValidatorDB''', along with information about the last database update (date and number of structures that have been processed during the validation). Specifically, in May 2014, over 100,000 PDB entries had been processed, containing over 230,000 molecules relevant for validation, and approximately 17,000 different models were used as reference during validation.
The ''synopsis page'' consists of 6 tabs, two providing support, and four enabling access to the database itself. Since this is your first contact with the database, the support tabs '''Quick Help''' and '''Samples''' help you get started, with basic information and examples of database snippets. Various interactive guides are accessible by a green button at the top right corner of some tabs. Examples of more complex analyses are available as ''[[ValidatorDB:CaseStudies | case studies]]''.
The '''ValidatorDB''' synopsis page further provides access to various data sets of PDB-wide validations via four different tabs, namely '''Overview''', '''Details by Residue''', '''Details by PDB entry''' and '''Custom Search'''. A full description of each of these tab is given below.
Additionally, the ''synopsis page'' allows to access the validation results for specific residues of interest via the '''Quick Lookup bar''' at the bottom of the page. Simply type a comma separated list of residue annotations (3-letter codes) into the '''Quick Lookup bar''', and you will be redirected to the [[ValidatorDB:Specifics_page | specifics page]] containing validation results for the molecules you requested. If you specify a list of PDB IDs (4-letter codes) instead, then the corresponding [[ValidatorDB:Database_organization#Specifics_page | specifics page]] will contain validation results for all relevant molecules in the PDB entries you specified.
