Combine Reports

The Combine Reports tool takes in multiple reports and generates a single report containing summaries and other selected information from the original reports. This tool makes it easy to get an overview for individual samples, by summarizing results from multiple report types, or across samples, by summarizing reports from multiple samples. Using combined reports for individual samples as input to this tool for cross-sample comparison, a comprehensive overview of experimental results can be generated quickly and easily. Outliers in cross-sample report tables are highlighted.

Reports produced by the CLC Genomics Workbench tools listed in Report types supported can be used as input, as can reports generated by some tools delivered by plugins developed by QIAGEN.
