Integrating RNA web services in Jalview using JABAWS
Jalview is an alignment editor, originally developed for protein sequences, that is used in a variety of web pages and is also available as a stand-alone project. Jalview also includes a client that interacts with web services via JABAWS. In previous Google Summers of Code, students have worked to extend the functionality of Jalview to handle non-coding RNA sequences. Many web services already exist that are related to RNA, but they are not yet available to the Jalview client. During this Google Summer of Code, I will integrate the Annotate3D and RNAfold web services with Jalview using the JABAWS system.
