Search the database for validation results corresponding to specific PDB entries and molecules of interest.]]
The '''Custom Search''' tab allows you to create your own view of the ligands validation of the PDB database.
In addition to the predefined summaries and reports already described, '''ValidatorDB''' can generate custom validation reports. You may specify a set of molecules using PDB IDs (4-letter codes) and annotations (3-letter codes). The validation results for these molecules are then retrieved from '''ValidatorDB''', organized and made accessible in the same manner as the entire database (). The only difference is that the overall statistics will refer to the your selection, and not to the entire PDB. Such custom reports allow you to better focus on molecules of interest (drug molecules, polycyclic molecules, etc.), from relevant PDB entries (entries with a resolution higher than 2 Å, published after 2010, etc.).
