We are pleased to announce release 2.0 of the CEDAR Workbench.

Enhancements include:

Workspace Versioning and Expanded Info Panel

Building on the REST-level support for versioning released in 1.9, CEDAR now supports versioning of templates, elements, and fields in the Workspace. A related enhancement includes an expanded Info panel to give details information about all CEDAR resources in the Workspace. Linked resources listed in the Info panel are also now clickable allowing users to navigate between related resources. We will shortly be releasing an instructional video describing this feature. Implementing tasks here.

caDSR CDE Support

CEDAR now supports Common Data Element-based fields exported from the National Cancer Institue caDSR system. These fields are based on the ISO/IEC 11179 metadata representation standard. This support allows users to reuse caDSR CDEs as fields in a CEDAR template. Implementing tasks here and here.

Enhanced Text and Numeric Fields

We enhanced CEDAR text fields to allow the specification of minimum and maximum string length. The numeric field was also enhanced and now supports decimal place specification, minimum and maximum values, unit specification, and additional numeric datatypes. Implementing tasks here and here.

AIRR Submission Pipeline

CEDAR now supports the submission of Advanced Immune Receptor Repertoire (AIRR) metadata described using the MiAIRR metadata standard to the National Center for Biotechniology Information (NCBI) BioProject, BioSample, and SRA repositories. A paper describing this work can be found here. A video describing this pipeline can be found here. Implementing tasks here.

This release also incorporated a significant number of usability enhancements and bug fixes.

All tasks completed for the 2.0 release series can be found here. Tasks relating to CDE support can be found here and here.
