Improved representation of large structures

The wwPDB is pleased to announce that structures that were historically "split" across multiple entries have now been combined into single PDBx/mmCIF files. Each combined file has been issued a new PDB identifier. This constitutes a significant improvement in the representation of large entries in the PDB archive.
