GenPipes 4.4.5 Release Notes

What’s new?

This is a bug-fix minor release:

  • Tumor Pair Pipeline: - Improved dependencies and symlink generation in sambamba_merge step

  • RNA Sequencing Pipeline (Light): - Fixed an issue when using single-end reads: bootstraps were not being generated, causing the sleuth step to fail - Improvements in kallisto speed by adding threads option (can be configured via ini)

  • RNA Sequencing Pipeline: - Addition of sortmeRNA metrics - Fixed an issue with using single-end reads: htseq-count metrics were generated with ‘reverse’ setting, causing incorrect read counts - htseq-count ‘stranded’ option can now be set via the config file - Updated htseq version

  • Chip Sequencing Pipeline: - In the differential binding step, thresholds for tables and figures can now be configured independently

  • Improved Throughput - Fixed a bug in the ordering of modules that caused unnecessary restarting of steps

Quick! Where can I find it? I can’t wait!
