Hi Aiqun Huang,

It puzzled me for a while. I found that renaming all 'K' atoms to 'C' the bonds are drawn correctly. That still puzzles me, but at least it offers a way to get the desired view.

Are you actually running simulations with this model? And are you interested in converting the CG model back to atomistic?

Hi dear PyMol users,

I am new to PyMol. I have a pdb file(see attached cg_dna.pdb) for a coarse-grained model of DNA, 

this file includes the "CONECT" section which specifying the connectivity of the coarse-grained beads.

I have tried the following commands:

load cg_dna.pdb, cg
set connect_mode, 1
show spheres
show sticks

But still I can not see the bonds showing in the image.  I searched a lot but still have no clue how to show the bonds between the coarse-grained beads.

Can anyone help me? Thanks!!
