[[File:VDB_overview.png|thumb|right|500px|The '''Overview tab''' contains an overall validation report for all the ligands and non-standard residues in the Protein Data Bank. Each bar represents overall statistics for the [[ValidatorDB:Database_contents | results ]] of a certain type of [[ValidatorDB:Principles#Validation_analyses | validation analysis ]]. ]]
The '''Overview''' tab of the ''synopsis page'' provides a very general statistical evaluation of results across the entire PDB in graphical form. The graph summarizes the results for each type of [[ValidatorDB:Principles#Validation_analyses | validation analysis ]], for all validated molecules, irrespective of annotation or PDB entry
. Each colorful bar refers to the number of molecules which exhibited issues (missing atoms, wrong chirality, etc.), or fared well (complete structure, correct chirality, etc.) during a given analysis. The length of the bar correlates with the percentage calculated from the total number of molecules analyzed. A bar appears in the '''Overview''' graph only if it represents at least 0.5%.
Results can be interpreted using the information in the [[ValidatorDB:Database_contents | Database contents]]. Tool tips are available for each element of the graph. The results for different types of validation analyses are labeled using the unified color scheme
