Examples of BioJS tools.

Tree Viewer (visualization of phylogeny data in a tree-like graph); MSA Viewer (visualization and analysis of multiple sequence alignments); Proteome (multilevel visualization of proteomes in UniProt; The UniProt Consortium, 2015); 3D structures (visualization of protein structures); Dot-bracket (visualization of RNA secondary structures); Muts-needle plot (presentation of mutation distribution across protein sequences). Protein Feature Viewer (visualization of position-based annotations in protein sequences); Plasmids (visualization of DNA plasmids); Pathway visualization (visualization of data from Pathway Commons; Cerami et al., 2011). Note that all visualization tools are native to the browser and do not require any specialized software (such as Adobe flash, Java Virtual Machine or Microsoft Silverlight) to be installed or loaded.
