JSON export

Reports can be exported in JSON format. An exported JSON file contains 4 main elements:

The data section contains nested elements following the structure of the report:

Once exported, the JSON file can be parsed and further processed. For example, using R and the package jsonlite, reports from different samples can be jointly analyzed. This enables easy comparison of any information present in the original reports across samples.

Note that the tool Combine Reports tool already provides a similar functionality, but the JSON export allows for more flexibility in what is compared across samples.
