Release note 01.11.21

Task queueing improvements

We have made the following changes to the task queueing process that should improve the queueing logic and contribute to faster completion of initialized tasks and analyses:

  • If you reach your parallel instance limit with running tasks, and there are both tasks and Data Cruncher analyses waiting in the queue, Data Cruncher analyses will be first to execute once instances become available.
  • If the parallel instance limit is reached with tasks that are being executed, when an instance becomes available it will first be allocated to running multi-instance or scattered tasks if they need additional instances. If there are no such tasks, the instance will be allocated to other task(s) that are next up in the queue. This will enable faster completion of multi-instance and scattered tasks and help avoid breaks in their execution.

Recently published apps

GENESIS LocusZoom visualizes association testing results using the LocusZoom standalone software. This app is a wrapper around LocusZoom standalone software to enable it to work with outputs of GENESIS association pipelines. The main goal of this app is to visualize results of GENESIS Single Variant Association Test, however regions from sliding window or aggregate tests with p-values below a certain threshold can be displayed in a separate track.

SBG Loci Snapshoter generates screenshots of specific regions across all aligned files provided as inputs. It utilizes the IGV batch functionality to create PNG images of desired loci across multiple samples. The main driver of developing this tool was doing a post-association visualisation of associated variants across a subset of CRAM files used to obtain those variants.
