Laj is a tool for viewing and manipulating the output from pairwise alignment programs such as blastz. It can display interactive dotplot, pip, and text representations of the alignments, a diagram showing the locations of exons and repeats, and annotation links to other web sites containing additional information about particular regions.The program is written in Java in order to provide a graphical user interface that is portable across a variety of computer platforms; indeed its name stands for “Local Alignments with Java”. Currently it exists in two forms, a stand-alone application and a web-based applet, with slightly different capabilities.
