In GenePattern 3.6, the job submit page (the page that appears when you select a module or pipeline) has been revised for ease of use. The user interface has been streamlined with clearer drag--and-drop targets, updated buttons and other UI elements, and reorganized module information in the header.
Improved File Input
We have improved file input to modules and pipelines in a number of ways:
You can drag-and-drop your input files from your desktop or from the Job Results, Uploads, and GenomeSpace tabs
There is a new upload progress bar that appears after you click the Run button if you are directly uploading files from your client file system (via drag-and-drop from the local file system or the Upload File button)
Drag-and-drop File Lists
We have implemented the ability to drag-and-drop/upload multiple files for a single module run; this provides an alternative to having to make a text file containing the absolute paths or URLs to each file, making it much easier to do a single module run on a set of files. These files can come from a direct upload, a previous job result, the GenomeSpace tab, or an external URL. This works for any module or pipeline that has file lists enabled.
The 3.6 release fixes issues in GenePattern, including:
Fixing a bug that prevented files from the Job Results and GenomeSpace tabs from being sent to the GENE-E module
Improved error handling for files and job submission failures
