suggests that my alignment file does not match my pdb file. Although, all
my files are in the same directory as modeller and both written in the
I'm not sure why it is not working? Before running the programme I edited
the PDB file using DEEPVIEW to remove the antagonist from the structure.
Also I used GENEDOC to produce the alignment and saved it in a PIR format.
Not sure if this has something to do with my problem?
