Server import and export locations shown in Workbench wizards now have tooltips giving the path to those locations.
Various other minor improvements (e.g. improved tooltips)
For the Basic Variant Detection, Fixed Ploidy Variant Detection and Low Frequency Variant Detection tools, the following have been addressed:
Fixed an issue where the coverage of a longer variant that contained another variant was reported for both the longer variant and the contained variant. The coverage for the contained variant is now reported correctly.
Fixed an issue affecting coverage calculation for SNVs without immediately adjacent variants when using paired read data: if the second read of a pair containing the variant did not meet the requirements of the quality filter, neither the first nor second read of that pair contributed to the coverage calculated for the variant.
Fixed an issue where, for an SNV without immediately adjacent variants, overlapping reads of a pair that had conflicting base calls for that variant position contributed to the values calculated for coverage, read coverage, and read count of that variant.
Fixed a bug where count, read count, and forward- and reverse read count could be incorrect for variants found in overlapping regions of a pair of reads and where the variant was originally identified as being adjacent to one or more other variants.
The above issues, including information on the products affected, are described on the public notification page: Coverage and count reporting for variants in certain circumstances are incorrect
For the Identify Known Mutations from Sample Mappings tool, the following issues have been addressed:
Fixed an issue with the Identify Known Mutations from Sample Mappings tool where reads in a sample mapping were not identified as supporting the presence of a known variant in cases where the first position of the variant region in the mapped read contained a gap.
Fixed an issue with the Identify Known Mutations from Sample Mappings tool where a read containing a variant longer than a known variant being tested for was counted as supporting the known variant in cases where the first part of the read’s variant sequence is identical to that of the known variant.
Fixed an issue in the Identify Known Mutations from Sample Mappings tool where overlapping reads of a pair having conflicting base calls for a variant position could contribute to the coverage calculated for that variant.
The Probabilistic Variant Detection (legacy) and Quality-based Variant Detection (legacy) tools will be removed from the Server and Workbenches in early 2017.
The Expression Profiling by Tags tools (Extract and Count Tags, Create Virtual Tag List, and Annotate Tag Experiment) are scheduled to be removed from the Server and Workbench in spring, 2017.
Support for some older operating systems (OS), listed below, will be discontinued in early 2017. Software released at that time and later may still run without issue, but problems experienced due to using an unsupported OS will not be addressed. If you are concerned about the proposed change, please contact our Support team (AdvancedGenomicsSupport@qiagen.com), letting them know the OS being used and the products you are running on that OS.
Windows: Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008
Mac: Mac OS X 10.7 and 10.8
Linux: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 and 11 and Fedora 6 through 21
