Tom and Elaine,


Is there a simple way to manipulate part of a protein structure in Chimera?
What I would like to do is the following. Let's say I have a molecular
compose 8 helixes. 7 of them fit in the cryo-EM map perfectly but one short
helix is off probably owing to conformational change.   I would like to move
the short helix into the density map manually. The difficult part is how to
make a smooth transition for loop regions at both ends of the helix. Would
you please give me some advice on this?
