Validation server

Welcome to the wwPDB validation server

A run of the wwPDB validation software pipeline typically takes between 5 minutes and one hour. You will receive an email when a run is finished and can then go back to the website to download the results files.

Uploaded files will not be stored for more than 2 days and wwPDB will make every effort to keep your files confidential.
