EPI2ME Labs 22.12.01 Release

Dear Nanopore Community,

We are delighted to release a new version of our EPI2ME Labs desktop bioinformatics environment.

EPI2ME Labs v4.0.0 provides an entirely new desktop environment and its simplified design makes installing, configuring, and running bioinformatics workflows (almost) as simple as it can get!

EPI2ME Labs 4.0.0 includes the JBrowse2 genome viewer software. It is used here by the _wf-human-variation_ workflow to show a collection of SNPs and SVs that were identified from chromosome 20 of the Cliveome during the NCM22 bioinformatics workshop.

This update also brings improvements to all our workflows, enhancing performance and fixing bugs. Please see the individual workflow CHANGELOG documents for more details. The nf-core-based schema that includes workflow documentation and the description of workflow parameters has been harmonised for all workflows. It is now simpler to configure the key parameters within workflows and the in-application documentation describes them more thoroughly. All workflows are also updated with demonstration datasets.

The EPI2ME Labs software now also supports the import and running of Nextflow workflows that have been developed by other bioinformaticians. In earlier release notes, we have described how our workflows are implemented in Nextflow and adhere to an nf-core-compatible schema. Any Nextflow workflow published on GitHub and with a schema that describes user-configurable paths may be imported into EPI2ME Labs 4.0.0. Please register your interest and we will keep you informed on training materials and events to help bring your workflows to EPI2ME Labs. For now see our blog post detailing our philosophy to workflow design focussed on the end-user.
