2013-09-02 release

Features:

  • Updated core client base code to JBrowse 1.10.2
  • 'Share' tab has been removed from the toolbar on top. The complete URL can be obtained from the browser line, it keeps track of all displayed tracks, and highlighted regions, if any.
  • in the aligned sequence BAM reads display, green, yellow and red colors flag insertions, substitutions and deletions (respectively). When the user hovers over them, details about the substituting nucleotide, or the size of the insertion or deletion are displayed.
  • Pinning a track to the top is now possible. The "User-Created Annotations" track is always pinned to the top, and may not be removed.
  • Alternate codon translation tables are now available and configurable.
  • Alternate splice sites are now configurable.
  • Filtering the list of available tracks is now possible.
  • It is also possible to combine the information from different quantitative tracks into a 'Combination Track', under the 'File' menu. Data from tracks containing graphs may be compared and combined in an additive, subtractive, or divisive manner. The resulting track highlights the differences between the data. This feature is useful for visualization of differential expression analyses, to observe changes in expression depending on he conditions.
  • The 'View' tab in the toolbar at the top now contains the menus from the 'Options' tab in the last version. Also, it is possible to 'Highlight' a region by selecting the option, then rubber-band marking the region. The highlight option will automatically be turned 'On' when inspecting the results from a BLAT search.
  • From the 'right/apple-click' menu, there are a number of new options.
    • It is now possible to set the 5', 3', or both boundaries from a track of evidence or alignment, as the boundaries of an exon in the 'User-Created Annotations' area.
    • It is also possible to annotate 'Readthrough Stop' signals using the apple/right-click menu. The current 'Stop' exon will be highlighted in purple, and the next 'Stop' signal in frame will be used as the end of translation.
    • It is also possible to use the 'Set longest ORF' option.
  • New metadata configuration in the 'Annotation Information Editor' now includes:
    • Name, Symbol, and Description Lines
    • Fields to input crossed references to other Data Bases (DBXRefs) such as WormBase, FlyBase, NCBI, etc.
    • PubMed IDs
    • GO Terms/IDs
    • The field 'Attributes' captures all additional metadata not already included in Comments, PubMed IDs, GO, and DBXRefs in a 'Tag/Value' format.
    • When ready to export, all metadata in the AIE goes to the 9th column of the GFF3.
  • GFF3 adapter now allows configuring the value to be put in the source column (column 2)
  • Rewrote 'add_transcripts_to_annotations_from_gff3.pl' script to write data to server in chunks (helps with efficiency and timeouts), no longer using BioPerl so it can properly handle CDS features
