A maximum coverage option has been added for projects in addition to the minimum coverage cutoffs. Neither setting is required.

Concatenating sequence files

Downloading line list and metadata templates

You may now download metadata and metadata templates from the line list page and project settings page as excel files. This should assist users in adding metadata to a project as they can download the template files, modify or add rows, then re-upload to IRIDA.

Other updates:

  • Improved performance of analysis pages - Speed of loading the page should be improved.
  • Download individual analysis output files - Click individual analysis file names to download instead of downloading an entire package.
  • Copy ownership - Allows users to copy samples without permitting modification access to the new project and users.
