What limits are there on the size of the system I can run with Prime?

From Suite 2010, the the maximum size of the proteins that can be run with Prime is 5000 residues and a total of 115,000 atoms. Each residue must have no more than 500 atoms. These limits do not include water molecules or symmetric images. You can include up to 5000 water molecules, and you can include up to 10 symmetric images.

In Suite 2009, the maximum size of the proteins that can be run with Prime is 2500 residues and a total of 50,000 atoms. Each residue must have no more than 250 atoms. These limits do not include water molecules or symmetric images. You can include up to 1000 water molecules, and you can include up to 10 symmetric images. Due to system memory requirements, the practical limit on the size of proteins may be less than these values. Proteins larger than 1000 residues may encounter memory limitations, particularly if crystal symmetry is used.
