[phenixbb] Twinned data with Phaser

I wonder whether our common metrics for assessing resolution are more optimistic for twinned data compared to untwinned - has anyone investigated that? Fewer weak reflections will reduce any sort of R-factor, but i’m not sure of its effect on CC(1/2)

There is always the question of what we mean by “the resolution of the data"

I do have a determination of the structure but would like to see if I can get the structure determined with a slightly higher resolution data set at around 2.7 A.  Problem is the 2.7 data is twinned.  Are there settings in Phaser to handle twinned data or is the twinning only handled during refinement?
