Combine Reports

The Combine Reports tool makes it easy to get a cross-sample overview by summarizing reports from multiple samples. The tool takes in multiple reports and generates a single report containing summaries and other selected information from the original reports with outliers highlighted.

To create a sample report for a single sample, use the tool Create Sample Report described in Report types supported. The individual sample reports, which combine information from multiple report types for a single sample, can then be used as input to the Combine Reports tool to generate a combined report that provides a comprehensive overview of results.

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.
