Thank you to everyone who wrote letters of support last year for our application to the BBSRC, we should hear the outcome in the next couple of months.

We are now applying to the Wellcome Trust to renew funding to support Jalview's use in biomedical sequence analysis, including interpretation of genomic variation and long read RNA data (e.g. Nanopore) at the protein coding level. If you would like Jalview to continue to develop and be supported 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: by Friday 22nd March 2019.

Thank you!

Please help with Jalview funding renewal

Jalview is made freely available to all thanks to a grant from the UK Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC). This funds Jalview development, training courses, website, back-end servers and email support. We are currently seeking renewal of this grant and letters of support are critical to the success of this renewal. If you find Jalview useful, please take a few minutes to write as soon as possible and tell us how you use Jalview and how important it is to your work!

Jalview in 2012 and 2013

2012 was quite a year here at A number of long running projects finally bore fruit with the launch of our new website and logo, and the release of Jalview Version 2.8. The November release of Jalview was the first to support JABAWS 2, which was launched in December 2011, and to include RNA visualization features developed by our 2010 and 2011 Google Summer of Code students: Lauren Lui and Jan Engelhart.

Jalview 2.8 release and the new look

We are very pleased to announce that Jalview 2.8 is now available from our brand new website at

Highlights in Jalview Version 2.8 include:
* Improved JABAWS client and new JABAWS 2.0 Services for alignment, conservation, and protein disorder prediction
* Support for RNA annotation manipulation and visualization on the alignment and via the embedded VARNA viewer

The new look website includes the new Jalview logo, and features blogs for training, community and Jalview development news. If you have any comments or suggestions, then we'd love to hear from you!
