I have a crystal structure which includes crystal water. Some of these crystal waters are bridging interactions between different amino acids in the protein and I would like to keep them. However, when I read the structure (a PDB file) into VMD, the water molecues are not read in, only the protein. I have look in the manulas but have not found any information about this. Is there anyone of you who has experince about this and know how to solve the problem?
