Release notes

Genome Browser official release

Genome Browser is no longer in the beta stage and has been officially released. The most important achievement in this release is guaranteed accuracy based on manual review of fields in the standard file compared to the most commonly used genome viewer.

Latest additions to Genome Browser also include a history of the last ten positions within the file, easier insertion of markers that takes less clicks than before and the ability to select a different reference file instead of the one that has been preselected based on the headers in the loaded BAM file.

We have also increased the maximum number of simultaneous BAM tracks, which is now up to twenty instead of the earlier maximum of only three. Higher number of tracks might affect the loading time, but will work properly as long as the browser memory limit is not exceeded.

To try out the new features, access the Genome Browser in your project’s Interactive Analysis section.
