The clustermap, sequences and structural models used for our new paper, in which we describe the discovery of the DivIVA-like superfamily of proteins (will be linked here when published). The clustermap provides a visualization of the sequence relationships of these sequences and can be opened with CLANS (https://www.eb.tuebingen.mpg.de/protein-evolution/software/clans). The structure models were predicted with AlphaFold and can be opened with a PDB viewer, such as PyMol.
