LALNVIEW: a graphical viewer for pairwise sequence alignments.

Author information

  • 1Department of Medical Biochemistry, University of Geneva, Switzerland.


LALNVIEW is a graphical program for visualising local alignments between two sequences (protein or nucleic acids). Sequences are represented by coloured rectangles to give an overall picture of their similarities. LALNVIEW can display sequence features (exon, intron, active site, domain, propeptide, etc.) along with the alignment. When using LALNVIEW through our Web servers, sequence features are automatically extracted from database annotations (SWISS-PROT, GenBank, EMBL or HOVERGEN) and displayed with the alignment. LALNVIEW is a useful tool for analysing pairwise sequence alignments and for making the link between sequence homology and what is known about the structure or function of sequences. LALNVIEW executables for UNIX, Macintosh and PC computers are freely available from our server (http://
