Refinement

Refine the experimental structures in vacuum

This is straightforward and can be done using a program similar to that in Step 7 of the PDB Files tutorial. The hydrogens are minimized first followed by a partial geometry optimization of the positions of the heavy atoms. The final optimized structures are saved as XYZ files.

Example program: RefineVacuumStructure.py
