SEView: a Java applet for browsing molecular sequence data

SEView is a Java applet that represents known or predicted elements of a protein or nucleotide sequence. It replaces or supplements the textual format of databases or program output with an interactive, graphical representation that is easily available through a WWW browser. Independence from the source data's format is achieved through a description language and ad hoc translators, which make the system versatile and flexible.

Key words: WWW, Java applet, graphical interface, sequence element viewer, feature table
