Chimera Team & users,
We have been using SAXS data and the DAMMIN software from the Svergun group.
The bead model that DAMMIN produces approximates the shape and volume of the molecule.
If one has a three dimensional structure of the molecule, then it becomes valuable to
do a best superposition of the structure into the bead-model shape.  Chimera is
our preferred molecular display & analysis software, and we would like to perform
this fitting in Chimera.  Do you have any experience in how to display the bead-model
output of DAMMIN and to fit or superimpose the bead model with a known structure?
