Jalview is a piece of bioinformatics software that is used to look at and edit multiple sequence alignments. It is written in the Java programming language. The programme was originally written by Michele Clamp whilst working in Geoff Barton's group at the EBI. Jalview 2, a re-engineered version produced by Andrew Waterhouse and Jim Procter whilst working in Geoff Barton's group at the University of Dundee, was released in 2005, and its development is supported by the BBSRC.
Jalview has a wide range of functions in addition to multiple sequence alignment viewing and editing including calculating phylogenetic trees and viewing molecular structures. Many of these use external web services to import data.
