Summary:
Save very large DNA molecule into several PDB files (improvement)

Detailed description
Suggested by Massa Shoura, U. of Texas

Why:

DNA made with GraphiteLifeExplorer is not size limited. However, the PDB file generated from a DNA model can reach the limit of 99 999 atoms if the model is made of ~2300 bp. The solution is to save and split such a large structure into several PDB files.

Another solution (simpler?) is to save in the mmCIF file format or in the PDBML format (even though I do not really know whether PDBML can handle more than 99,999 atoms).
