Note: The SCF format (.scf) has been renamed to the SeqSel format (.seqsel) due to preexisting SCF formats that store data from DNA sequencing instruments. The .scf extension is still compatible with jevtrace.
The SeqSel sequence coloring format is designed to encode the coloring of individual sequences, multiple sequence alignments (MSA) and protein structures.
SeqSel is compatible with multiple types of alignments and structures, encoding universal features. The format is text based, human readable, and optimized for storage. Since the coloring data is valid only for a specific sequence or alignment, an optional checksum is added to each selection file to ensure consistency.
x1 x2 y1 y2 r g b
where (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) are alignment coordinates of the residue or alignment block
r,g,b are the Red Green and Blue RGB color channels.
