Ligand Validation Workshop Group Photo 2015-07-30

The inaugural ligand validation meeting brought co-crystal structure determination experts from academe and industry together with X-ray Crystallography and Computational Chemistry software developers to discuss and develop best practices for validation of co-crystal structures; editorial/refereeing standards for publishing co-crystal structures; and recommendations for ligand representation across the archive.

These recommendations have been published:
