Hi Shane, With PyMOL v1.5 and later, and a reasonable machine you should be able to use large systems (250,000, and upward of 1,000,000+ atoms) without much of a problem. Using the following simple test script: fetch 2xpj, type=pdb1, async=0 split_states 2xpj delete 2xpj orient For these

Hi Jason, Thanks a lot for the performance info. I think that a full capsid would be around 300,000 atoms, so your info is very helpful. We will probably invest in the newest version of pymol when we purchase the computer. On Fri, Jun 15, 2012 at 12:19 PM, Jason Vertrees

Hi Shane, I've been playing with a virus 60mer on an intel core i7 workstation with 6Gb memory with good response. Just make sure you use the latest incentive or open source version and have a good graphics card. Cheers, Tsjerk On Jun 14, 2012 11:49 PM, Shane Neeley shane.nee...@gmail.com
