[Biojava-l] Partial ORGANISM_SCIENTIFIC name returned from PDB 4xcw

I forgot to mention, the mmCIF parser is fine with this and returns the 
correct organism string.

So the other solution is simply to use mmCIF files. To load a structure 
from mmCIF with AtomCache you need something like this:

     AtomCache cache = new AtomCache();

     Structure struct = StructureIO.getStructure("4XCW");

In general it is a good idea to use mmCIF, since they have more complete 
and better structured information. Additionally, the PDB has already 
stopped providing some large structures in the PDB format, so the only 
way to cover the whole PDB is to use mmCIF.

Good luck
