Item Description

A reference to the external file containing the structural models in the ensemble. The number of models in the external file should correspond to the number of models in the ensemble. This data item is a pointer to in the IHM_EXTERNAL_FILES category. It is recommended that the large ensemble files be stored as separate zip files within the same DOI. It is also recommended that large sphere model ensembles be in binary format, which facilitates faster access. Currently, a binary dump of co-ordinates in dcd format is suggested. The topology can be inferred from the IHM_SPHERE_OBJ_SITE and the ATOM_SITE categories in the corresponding mmCIF file.
