Prepare QCI Interpret Upload

The Prepare QCI Interpret Upload tool prepares a sample from several types of tracks and reports that can be uploaded to QCI Interpret or QCI Interpret Translational at a later time with Upload Prepared QCI Interpret Report.

This tool can be used in workflows to select all relevant tracks and reports. It sets name based on input or other metadata and outputs a single report that is ready to be uploaded to QCI Interpret. This is convenient because users won't have to choose multiple track inputs for every workflow output they want to upload to QCI Interpret.
