Local search

There are two ways of searching for data based on its name or other attributes, or for metadata that contains particular information:

Search index

The CLC Genomics Workbench automatically maintains an index of all data in all locations in the Navigation Area. It is this index that is used when searching for data.

Problems with search results can reflect a problem with the index. If you suspect the index is out of sync with the data, you can rebuild it by right-clicking on the relevant data location in the Navigation Area and then selecting:

        Location | Rebuild Index

Rebuilding the index can take some time.

If you wish to stop the index building process, this can be done in the Process Area.
