Import/export of data and graphics

Biomedical Genomics Workbench handles a large number of different data formats. In order to work with data in the Workbench, it has to be imported (Image Next_Folder_16_n_p). Data types that are not recognized by the Workbench are imported as "external files" which means that when you open these, they will open in the default application for that file type on your computer (e.g. Word documents will open in Word).

This chapter first deals with importing and exporting data in bioinformatic data formats and as external files. Next comes an explanation of how to export graph data points to a file, and how to export graphics.

For import of NGS data, please see Import high-throughput sequencing data.

Using data from other workbenches

Please note that if you also have access to CLC Genomics Workbench, CLC Main Workbench, or CLC Sequence Viewer you may have generated different types of output that you would like to view in the Biomedical Genomics Workbench. All types of output that have been created in CLC Genomics Workbench, CLC Main Workbench, or CLC Sequence Viewer can be opened in the Biomedical Genomics Workbench. This means that you are capable of opening certain output types that cannot be generated from within the Biomedical Genomics Workbench. In such cases we refer to our other manuals e.g. the CLC Genomics Workbench manual that can be found here: for further information about the output types that are not described in the Biomedical Genomics Workbench manual.

Output files from other workbenches can be imported as described in Standard Import.
