Jalview Schema

Jalview has built in DNA, RNA and protein sequence and structure visualization and analysis capabilities, and uses Jmol to view 3D structures, and VARNA to display RNA secondary structure. The Jalview Desktop can also connect with databases and analysis services, and provides a graphical interface to the alignment and analysis services provided by the JavA Bioinformatics Analysis Web Services framework.
