Allison Meighan, a final year jewellery and metalwork undergraduate at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design at the University of Dundee, took inspiration for her final year project from mitochondrial DNA sequences. She compared Mesolithic MtDNA with contemporary British MtDNA using Jalview to align the strands of code and to visualise the points of difference. There were 38 differences noted in the 165,569 bases of the modern MtDNA ring.
Dr Suzanne Duce ran hands-on demonstrations of Jalview for the public in the University’s LifeSpace Science Art Research Gallery on Saturday 11th May. This was part of the Wellcome Centre for Anti-Infectives Research’s Drug Design: Drug Discovery afternoon of activities and tours. Visitors got the opportunity of using Jalview to visualize how medicines work at the molecular level.

Apologies to Jalview users who may be trying to contact our external-facing services. Since about 22:00 on 25th October, the University of Dundee has had a major network failure. The University's IT team have identified the core problem but it looks like it will take time to fix.

The latest video on our Jalview YouTube channel is a walkthrough video by Dr David Martin. David demonstrates Jalview’s new split frame window that links coding DNA sequences in the exons with protein sequences and structure.
Geoff and Suzanne were promoting Jalview at the Microbiology Society Annual Conference in Liverpool Arena and Convention Centre (21st-23th March 2016), about 200 people came to the booth over three days.
