MOTIVATION: JOY is a program to annotate protein sequence alignments with three-dimensional (3D) structural features. It was developed to display 3D structural information in a sequence alignment and to help understand the conservation of amino acids in their specific local environments. RESULTS: : The JOY representation now constitutes an essential part of the two databases of protein structure alignments: HOMSTRAD (http://www-cryst.bioc.cam.ac.uk/homstrad ) and CAMPASS (http://www-cryst.bioc.cam.ac. uk/campass). It has also been successfully used for identifying distant evolutionary relationships. AVAILABILITY: The program can be obtained via anonymous ftp from torsa.bioc.cam.ac.uk from the directory /pub/joy/. The address for the JOY server is http://www-cryst.bioc.cam.ac.uk/cgi-bin/joy.cgi.

SciCrunch is a data sharing and display platform. Anyone can create a custom portal where they can select searchable subsets of hundreds of data sources, brand their web pages and create their community. SciCrunch will push data updates automatically to all portals on a weekly basis. User communities can also add their own data to SciCrunch, however this is not currently a free service.
