[buster-discuss] Fwd: To many Chain IDs

the mmcif coordinate format allows longer, and therefore more, unique chain
identifiers. That format also appears to be the default for coordinate
downloads from the pdb.  I, too, work on a project with more than 26 chains
and would welcome support for cif coordinates. Does buster already support
them or is that support under development?

I am trying to use Buster for structure refinement, however PDBChk always
fails because of unrecognized chain IDs. One monomer of my complex is 13
chains, and I have 4 NCS-related monomers in the asymmetric unit, thus 52
total chains. It seems Buster does not like lower case chain IDs. Is there
any other method by which I can refine my structure and still utilize the
4-fold NCS with Buster?
