I suggest that the easiest approach would be to use DETWIN from ccp4 to
create a detwinned dataset and use that for arp/warp. With 2.0 A
data arp/warp could be able to autobuilt a good model.

You can always go back to shelxl later and continue refinement
in your prefered way, but I think an approximate detwinning will
be OK for refmac/arp/warp.  Maybe try that in a higher resolution
structure first (I think you have a few ...) to see if I am wrong or
We had a coupel of years ago some lack doing that with Anke T.v.S. et al
(Uppsala) but that was with 1.3 data ...


P.S Hope I re-subscribed corrrectly from NKI, but if this ends in the
bin of the list admin, pls fwd to list ...
