What is it about?

We found a million things that are a bit strange in published structures of proteins. We want to alert users of the structures to the fact they have to be careful and that there are tools to validate structure quality, and and we want to alert producers of structures that there are tools to prevent mistakes and pull attention to interesting observations.

Why is it important?

This has become the standard citation referring to the need of (protein) structure validation tools.
