[Chimera-users] Symmetry-aware segmentation?

Hi Joel,

  Chimera does not do segmentation that respects map symmetry.  I have talked about that with Greg Pintilie, the author of the Segger (aka Segment Map) segmentation tool in Chimera.

  For subdividing a segment, you can do that by selecting the segmentation surface and using the Ungroup button on the Segment Map dialog.  There is a limit to how small the regions can be that Segment Map (aka Segger) will make -- a region with just one local maximum cannot be subdivided by this tool.  The basic method of that tool is to combine regions around each local maximum in the map.
