[phenixbb] Can Phenix do MR with medium/low res EM models?

Hi Phenix community,

I was wondering if Phenix can handle MR starting from medium/low res EM
I have a very large oligomeric protein (2.4MDa) with lots of NCS and >450
In principle, I could use low res MR phases from the "replaced" model to
locate Se-sites and 
then NCS-averaging to locate more sites and improve my phases.

Any suggestions how to get Phenix to use an EM model?
Has anybody done it successfully using Phenix?

Thanks in advance,
