Hi Eduardo,
Aha!  You can see all the header information from the PDB file (the 
lines that come before the coordinates).  How to do that: open the 
Model Panel (Favorites... Model Panel) and for the model you are 
interested in, click "attributes..."  Click the "PDB Headers..." button 
at the bottom of the resulting attributes panel.  Currently the header 
lines are shown in a different order than in the original PDB file 
(they are sorted alphabetically by type, but wthin each type such as 
REMARK the order is not changed), so you will have to scroll down to 
the SOURCE record to see the organism.
