Thanks Elaine that works, However I had a hard time setting the transparency. I tried selecting the atoms opacity colors but I didn't manage to made the surface transparent (neither the atoms).

Hi Hernando,
You can do it with Color Zone (in menu under Tools...Volume Data, also in Volume Viewer "Tools" menu).  This colors surfaces to match nearby selected atoms or markers:


I hope this helps,
