Version 2.8.1 of Jalview is now available at www.jalview.org.
This is the third release in the 2.8.x series of Jalview, and in addition to a liberal scattering of bug fixes, provides new support for RNA secondary structure prediction, additional score models for tree-building and PCA, and several minor improvements to Jalview's user interface. Full details are at http://www.jalview.org/development/release-history/281
We are encouraged by the numbers of scientists across the globe who use Jalview.
It helps us, if people who use Jalview would cite our Jalview 2 paper when they publish research that utilises Jalview.
Thank you to those of you who have done this. In the last five years according to Web of Science, the paper has been cited in 1,121 articles.
We are advertising for 2 Visual Analytics Computational Scientist/Developers.
The job will involve redesigning the open source, visual, analytics platform Jalview. This is a powerful interactive visualisation program for alignment and analysis of biological sequence data.
