Export Image

Allows you to export the current view (reads visualization) as a PNG image saved to disk.

Export Coverage Summary

Allows you to export a summary of the coverage across all contigs of the currently loaded assembly. This exports a list of contigs with the coverage value for each base of the consensus. There is an additional config file (called printPads) which allows you to choose if padded bases have their coverage output. This defaults to true.


Closes any currently open assembly and returns to the Tablet front page.

  • Tablet Options
