International Tables for Crystallography (2006). Vol. F, ch. 21.1, pp. 497-506 [ doi:10.1107/97809553602060000707 ]
Since the process of building and refining a model of a biomacromolecule based on crystallographic data is subjective, quality-control techniques are required to assess the validity of such models. During the 1990s, much experience was gained; the methods used and some of the lessons learned are reviewed here. In addition, an extensive compendium of quality criteria and quality-control methods that are or have been used to validate models of biomacromolecules has been compiled. The emphasis in this compendium is on the validation of protein crystal structures.
