Hi Conrad, Eric and Elaine,

Thanks so much for your valuable inputs. I will try to give ChimeraX a shot. From the ChimeraX download page, it looks like installation is difficult in CentOS. I am running CentOS 6.6 with gcc 4.4.7 in my workstation. Any upfront suggestion from your side before I try to install? Sorry, I am not a very techie person !

Best regards,

From: Elaine Meng <meng at cgl.ucsf.edu>

Using the links in the Log table adds the copies as graphical clones.  To get the all-atom copies (which can be colored independently etc.), you’d need to use a similar “sym” command (as using the links echoes in the Log) but with the option “copies true”.


(Pardon my terseness… arm injury, difficult to type.)

The first entry in the table is the complete icosahedral virus assembly.  If you click on that link in the table it will show the complete assembly.
