While we appreciate suggestions to improve JProfileGrid, there are no plans for implementing any significant changes, e.g. integrating a linked viewer for 3D structures or phylogenetic trees. We encourage programmers to incorporate the ProfileGrid representation into alignment visualization programs.

Meet the Team

Alberto I. Roca, Ph.D. was a Project Scientist working with Alex McPherson in the Molecular Biology & Biochemistry Department at the University of California, Irvine. His research involves using biophysical and bioinformatic approaches to understand the molecular mechanism of recombinational DNA repair. He received his Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Aaron C. Abajian was a UC-Irvine undergraduate who triple majored in Computer Science & Engineering, Mathematics, and Biology. He has a strong interest in bioinformatics and currently is in medical school at Yale University.


A.I. Roca was supported by a University of California President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship, the Erasmo Foundation, and a National Institutes of Health Diversity Supplement (parent grant GM058868 to Alexander McPherson).
