The analysis functionality of the CLC Genomics Workbench can be extended substantially by installing plugins. The built-in Plugin Manager provides an up-to-date listing of the plugins available. These include commercial modules, such as those that are part of the QIAGEN CLC Genomics Workbench Premium product.
Alternatively, visit our plugin webpage for a list: https://digitalinsights.qiagen.com/products-overview/plugins/.
Plugins are installed and uninstalled using the Plugin Manager, which can be opened using the Plugins () button in the Toolbar, or by going to the top level menu:
Utilities | Manage Plugins... ()
Note: To install plugins and modules using a centrally installed CLC Workbench, the software must be run in administrator mode. On Windows, right-click on the program shortcut and choose "Run as Administrator". On Linux, this usually means running the software with sudo privileges.
The Plugin Manager has two tabs at the top:
- Manage Plugins. An overview of plugins that are installed.
- Download Plugins. An overview of plugins available from QIAGEN that are not yet installed on your Workbench.
