Hi Smith,

if you've got cryo-EM map, built an initial model into it and want to 
refine it then the most natural way to do so is to refine the model 
against the map directly and NOT take a detour through reciprocal space 
by converting the map into structure factors and then using the 
crystallography-specific refinement programs.

There is a Phenix refinement tool specifically designed for this - 
refinement of atomic models into cryo-EM maps or low-resolution X-ray 
maps, described here:


If for whatever reason you still want to do it the old way, then here 
are two steps:
- convert the map into structure factors:
phenix.map_to_structure_factors map.ccp4

- then run phenix.refine the usual way.
