Release notes

Computation backend improvements

We are making some improvements to our computation backend. These changes impact sbg:draft2 tasks only, mostly bringing some of their behaviors/capabilities in line with CWL 1.0 tasks.

The following are the changes:

Scattering improvement: When running sbg:draft2 workflows, you might notice a runtime improvement in some workflows that make use of chained scattering. There is no action needed on your part and you can continue running your apps as usual.

Docker entrypoints: The executor for sbg:draft2 apps now honors docker image entrypoints. If your sbg:draft-2 app refers to a Docker image that has a defined entrypoint, this previously ignored Docker feature will now be active. Please have this change in mind when running the app and do let us know if you notice any unexpected behavior.

Stage multiple files with the same name: If multiple files that have the same name are provided from an upstream tool to a staged input port of a downstream tool in a workflow, staging will work successfully as the files will now be renamed automatically. Please have this in mind if you are relying on file names during the processing steps in your workflows.

If you have any questions related to these changes, please contact our Support team at support@sbgenomics.com.

DeepVariant 0.7.2 is an analysis pipeline that uses a deep neural network to call genetic variants from next-generation DNA sequencing data. DeepVariant is highly accurate, robust, flexible and easy to use. To use DeepVariant on the CGC, simply supply it with reads, reference, and select the desired model to use (WGS or WES).
