Hi Desiree,
We understand it can take a while to get up to speed -- Chimera has a lot of stuff in it!

You can use the volume command to change the display style of the map (also contour levels, colors ...), e.g.:

vol #0 style mesh level 20 color goldenrod


You could use the modeldisplay and ~modeldisplay commands to show/hide the crystal structures.

Chimera command index:

I hope this helps,

Can you recommend the best way to approach this? Specifically, I am uncertain as to what command will help me accomplish this and/or if I need different chimera files for each form of the model...
