Who is the Jalview community?

Jalview is used for teaching and research all around the world. If you use Jalview, then we'd like you to be part of our Jalview community. The links page lists projects that use the web based version of Jalview - if yours isn't listed, or you use Jalview in other ways and would like to tell us, then we'd like to hear from you!

Getting in touch

There are plenty of ways you can keep in touch with other Jalview community members. Our email lists have been running for a number of years, and you can use the RSS feed links to follow updates to the website. If you're one of the twitterati, then you can tweet @Jalview.

Email lists

  • Sign up to the news mailing list (jalview-announce) to receive major announcements and notifications of new releases.
  • The user discussion list (jalview-discuss) is the place to get help, talk about new features, or just speak to other Jalview users.
  • We also have a developers mailing list (jalview-develop) for people who are contributing to Jalview's source and documentation.
    If you want to join, register first on the jalview bug tracker and send the administrator a message.
