Structure Analysis and Validation
SAVES has been in operation since 2004 and is currently operating version 6. It is an interactive validation server for 5 programs commonly used in protein structure validation. Some of these tools were initially invented in the early 1990s in FORTRAN code and some have been upgraded to be in C++ code. Some of them have source code available. All of them can be run through the dashboard screen concurrently and results can be downloaded for later use.
The server runs between 1,000 and 2,000 jobs every day from users around the world. Due to this, we only hold on to a job’s results files for 1 week. However, it is always easy to run a job again. And you don’t have to run them all, pick any program to run on its own using the same dashboard.
