A New and Unexpectedly Powerful VarSeq Feature


With the release of VSReports, we added the ability to “select” rows of your filtered output (often variants, but potentially things like coverage regions or genes) with a new feature dubbed “Record Sets”, but more often described as “colored checkboxes” for your tables.

Most importantly, the budget agreement raises discretionary spending by $80 billion in fiscal years 2016 and 2017 which should create room for increased spending in federal science agencies and offices as… Read more »
