This page contains a series of directories with FULCHK outputs of WHATCHECK.
This page is mainly meant for Elmar, Robbie, Jurgen, to help me find bugs.
This course heavily borrowed text-fragments from Rob Hooft's 1997 WHAT_CHECK
A sorted list of all messages for
all PDB files is available.
A WHAT IF check report: what does it mean?
First a few general points:
- References in the subsections of the report have been removed.
Full references can be found at the end of the full report.
- In a WHAT_CHECK report, each reported fact has an assigned severity, one of:
Severe errors encountered during the analyzes. Items marked as errors are
considered severe problems requiring immediate attention.
Either less severe problems or uncommon structural features. These
still need special attention.
Statistical values, plots, or other verbose results of tests and
analyzes that have been performed.
- In a first scan, it might be nice to be able to run through "Error" messages
only, but for a careful examination, all messages must be considered.
- In a WHAT_CHECK report, a residue is identified by:
- A number. This is the internal sequence number of the residue used by
- The residue name. Normally this is a three letter amino acid name.
- The sequence number, sometimes followed by an insertion code, between
brackets. This is the residue number as it was given in the input PDB file.
- The chain identifier, if applicable. A single character.
- A model number, if applicable (for NMR structures).
- An atom is identified by a residue and an atom name.
