Version 2.8.2


Jalview is free to end-users because of support from the UK's BBSRC and The Wellcome Trust

If you would like to see Jalview continue to be available then please take a few minutes to write us a support letter saying how you use Jalview in your research/teaching.

Write as a PDF including your institution's heading and send to:
support_jalview@bartongroup.org by Friday 19th October 2018.

Thank you all those who have already written such nice letters!
