Create Sample Report

Create Sample Report takes in multiple reports relating to a single sample and creates a summary report that includes selected information from the original reports.

In addition, specific types of information can be selected for inclusion in the Quality Control section of the sample report. The type of information to include is specified when launching the tool. Thresholds can also be configured. When this is done, the Quality Control section of the report can be quickly scanned to see if thresholds were met or not for each value type.

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.

Creating a sample report

To create a sample report, go to:

        Toolbox | Quality Control (Image quality_control_closed_16_h_p) | Create Sample Report (Image sample_report_16_h_p)

In the dialog that opens, select the reports to use as input (figure 26.30).

Figure 26.30: Reports about a particular sample have been selected as input.

In the next dialog, contents to include in the optional Quality Control section of the report can be configured (figure 26.31).

Check the boxes in the Include column for the information types to include. If no boxes are checked, a Quality Control section will not be included in the sample report. The information types listed reflect the tools of the CLC Genomics Workbench and any installed plugins that generate supported report types.

For each information type, quality control criteria can, optionally, be specified by entering a value in the QC threshold column. When this is done, the threshold value specified is included in the report, and its cell is colored green if the threshold is met or exceeded, or yellow if it is not (figure 26.32).
