While it is a possible way of doing this (and this is how it's been done
in the past) I don't think it is a good route to follow. In case of
cryo-EM your data is map, so why not just refine against the map? Why
take a detour through reciprocal-space by converting map into structure
factors (=manipulating your original data) and doing reciprocal space
using refinement programs that were designed for crystallography?
With this in mind we have developed a new refinement tool in Phenix (it
is still in active development!) called phenix.real_space_refine that is
designed to refine atomic models directly into maps (any map: X-ray,
neutron, cryo-EM, low or high resolution), for quick summary see
as well as documentation page (at the bottom):
and newsletter article (page 43):
Let me know if you have any questions or comments!
