When you install CLC Genomics Workbench, it has a standard set of features. However, you can upgrade and customize the program using a variety of plugins.
As the range of plugins is continuously updated and expanded, they will not be listed here. Instead we refer to http://www.qiagenbioinformatics.com/plugins/ for a full list of plugins with descriptions of their functionalities.
Note: In order to install plugins and modules, the Workbench must be run in administrator mode. On Linux and Mac, it means you must be logged in as an administrator. On Windows, you can do this by right-clicking the program shortcut and choosing "Run as Administrator".
Plugins are installed and uninstalled using the plugin manager.
Help in the Menu Bar | Plugins... () or Plugins () in the Toolbar
The plugin manager has two tabs at the top:
- Manage Plugins. This is an overview of plugins that are installed.
- Download Plugins. This is an overview of available plugins on QIAGEN Aarhus server.
