Question: What about the support for icosahedral viruses?

Answer: EMAN supports icosahedral symmetry similarly to other symmetries. Basically you will follow the same procedures as for particles of other symmetries. Of course, you need to specify sym=icos for the refine command. To build initial model, you can use starticos program. If you still have questions specific to icosahedral viruses, please contact Dr. Wen Jiang <jiang12 at> who made most of the changes in EMAN to support icosahedral symmetry well.
