Hi Jason,

  Chimera does not (yet) read mmCIF files.  You would need to convert to
PDB or MOL2 format.  There are cif to pdb conversion programs on the web,
for example, CIFTr and cif2pdb.  I have not tried any of them.

  We have worked on reading mmCIF files in Chimera but have not solved
the problems of creating correct bonds using templates.  So we have not
distributed our mmCIF reading code with Chimera.
