How can I load the electron density of a protein from x-ray crystallography data?

Electron density maps can be imported with Workspace → Surface → Import (from Suite 2010) or Display → Surface → Import (earlier releases). The file formats that you can import are CNS electron density maps (.cns or .map), and CCP4 electron density maps (.ccp4). For the electron density maps, the Map Type dialog box is displayed after choosing the entry, so that you can select the map type from among the common types, e.g., 2Fo-Fc.
