On Saturday 14th September at the School of Medicine, Jalview took part in Dundee's Doors Open Day. Visitors tried out the new ‘Visualising DNA, RNA & Proteins’ Jalview School Workbook. The exercise that identified the genetic mutation responsible for sickle cell anaemia using Jalview’s DNA/protein split-screen viewer proved very popular.
Jalview’s newest member Ben Soares visited St Columba's RC Primary School in Cupar on Tuesday 2nd April. Ben spoke to around fifty 8-9-year-olds in the P4 and P4/5 classes about computers, coding and computational biology. Ben fired up Jalview to compare a Tyrannosaurus Rex protein in the PDB with those from other species.
The school tweeted some great photos from his visit www.twitter.com/StColumbasRCPS/status/1113902790953373698.
On Friday 2nd February, Suzanne Duce visited Seaview Primary School in Monifieth, Angus. She had a question and answer session with a Year 7 class. Then talk about her research and gave practical demonstration of Jalview.
