[Jalview-discuss] Conventions for Graphical representation for protein annotations

Dear all,

I need to know if there is a key of colours and shapes for the graphical 
representation of annotations in proteins. for instance, if I need to 
have a pictorial representation of a "domain" or "transcript" then is 
there a standardized way to do it? So far I have seen that domains are 
usually represented as ellipses or rectangles, and metal bindings as 
non-filled circles, while active sites are red-filled circles.
I am particular interested in the next type of annotations:
Domain, Signal, Transit, Propeptide, Peptide, Topological domain, 
Intramembrane, Transmenbrane for ranges of sequences, and Metal binding, 
Active site, Modified residue, Lipidation, Glycosilation for point 
positions.

I appreciate any information on this matter.

Cheers,
