can you please give me an advice how to convert .cif files into .pdb preferably using python?
Thanks in advance! Best, Balint Biro

As @Michael said PyMOL can do this. PyMOL is not only an app, but also a python package —installed via conda not via the regular download (you can have both).
import pymol2 with pymol2.PyMOL() as pymol: pymol.cmd.load(infile,'myprotein') pymol.cmd.save(infile.replace('.cif', '.pdb'), selection='myprotein')
This runs the parallelisable instance, so you can have that context manager block running on how many threads or processes you fancy.
