[phenixbb] Real space refinement

there are two options.
One is convert your EM map into structure factors Fobs and HL
coefficients using phenix.map_to_structure_factors command and then use
phenix.refine to do reciprocal space refinement. This is somewhat
indirect way. The good thing about it is that phenix.refine has a broad
range of tools to handle low resolution refinement.
Another option is to use phenix.real_space_refine to refine model
against the map directly. This is a preferred way but
phenix.real_space_refine is new, less mature program and it generally is
still under development (though it's functional if you try it now). So
if it does not work as you expected or you have any feature requests or
any questions or any other feedback - please do not hesitate to let me
know, as this may help to improve this tool.
All the best,

>> I have a question for you regarding real space refinement in Phenix. We have a 3.7 Angs cryo-EM reconstructed structure for a virus capsid and we have been able to build a model for the capsid VP using COOT. I would like to refine this model further against the map using real space refinement. I am trying to find a suitable program that would allow me to do this. I believe Phenix can do it, but I am not sure. Could you give me some direction?
