Visualisation and Analysis of Molecular Sequences, Alignments and Structures

A key objective of this project is to simplify collaboration between the phylogeny and protein structure communities via the provision of easy to use tools for complex methods. We will achieve this by adding significant new functions to three popular Java-based applications that span phylogenetics on DNA (TOPALi) protein sequence analysis and prediction (JalView) and visualisation of three-dimensional structure (AstexViewer@MSD-EBI )

The VAMSAS Interoperation Framework
A data interchange and communication library has been developed and incorporated into Jalview and TOPALi enabling them to share bioinformatics data and user interface events.
