SUMMARY: An algorithm and software are described that provide a fast method to produce a novel, function-oriented visualization of the results of a sequence database search. Text mining of sequence annotations allows position specific plots of potential functional similarity to be compared in a simple compact representation.

AVAILABILITY: The application can be accessed via a web server at The RHIMS software may be obtained by request to the authors.
