CLC Genomics Workbench 9.5.4 版本发布

Release date: 2017-02-14


 In cases where tools within a workflow have been renamed, it is now possible to filter for original tool names within the workflow configuration view of the workflow editing tool.

 Bug fixes

A timeout value that would lead a job to fail after 24 hours, which was introduced as part of optimizations to run on multiple threads in the CLC Genomics Workbench 9.5 has been extended to 7 weeks. The tools affected by this change are Annotate from Known Variants, Filter against Known Variants, Filter against Control Reads, Annotate with Exon Number, Annotate with Flanking Sequences, Filter Marginal Variant Calls, Compare Sample Variant Tracks, Trio Analysis, GO enrichment Analysis, Amino Acid Changes, Annotate with Conservation Score, Predict Splice Site Effect, Link Variants to 3D Protein Structure, Merge Annotation Tracks, Create Statistics for Target Regions, Fisher Exact Test, Annotate with Overlap Information, Filter Based on Overlap, Filter Reference Variants, Identify Candidate Variants, Coverage Analysis, and InDels and Structural Variants.

  •  Fixed an issue in the RNA-Seq Analysis tool where running in EM mode, with a "Strand specific" setting of "Forward" or "Reverse" would result in the second read of a pair mapped as a broken pair being counted incorrectly if that read was mapped outside a region annotated as a transcript.

  •  Fixed an issue where an error arose when using the RNA-Seq Analysis tool with the EM option and a strand specific setting of "Forward" or "Reverse" in cases where the second read of mapped broken pair mapped to the opposite strand of the strand specific setting.

  •  Fixed an issue where the forward and/or reverse count for a longer variant, supported by paired reads with both children having the same direction, could be too low. The forward count and reverse count is now reported correctly.

  •  Fixed an issue with the InDels and Structural Variants tool where an incorrect insertion could be called when the optimal alignment of a read's unaligned end around the breakpoint included a gap in the insertion sequence.

  •  Fixed an issue in the InDels and Structural Variants tool that would terminate analysis of large read mappings prematurely a fraction of the times.

  •  Fixed an issue with the Basic Variant Detection, Low Frequency Variant Detection and Fixed Ploidy Variant Detection tools where the count and read count could be reported as marginally higher than they actually were in a small minority of cases. For the affected variants, this could then also result in variant frequencies being reported that were slightly higher than they should have been, in some cases above 100%. Variants affected by this issue are a small subset of variants where the variant affected overlapped another potential variant and where only the affected variant was then reported. This change could lead to a small decrease in the number variants reported compared to earlier versions of the CLC software, due to a variant no longer passing the count or read count filtering constraints. The impact of this change is expected to be low. For example, in our tests, for a particular analysis that reported 250,000 variants, 30 fewer were reported with the same parameters and filters applied after this fix was implemented.

  •  Fixed an issue where the Basic Variant Detection, Fixed Ploidy Variant Detection, Low Frequent Variant Detection and Local Realignment tools could fail if a deletion was encountered at the end of a match between a read and the reference in the mapping used as input.

  •   Fixed an issue in the Basic Variant Detection, Fixed Ploidy Variant Detection and Low Frequent Variant Detection tools where the tools could stop with an error. The problem arose when a read split up within a mapping (e.g. to map to separate exons) was split into 4 or more parts, and at least 4 of those parts would map within a region of adjacent variants being considered as a possible multiple nucleotide variant (MNV). This infrequent problem was most likely to occur when using high coverage RNA-Seq mappings and looking for variants occurring at low frequency. It was introduced in the previous bugfix release of the CLC Genomics Workbench, version 9.5.3.

 Advanced notice

     The Probabilistic Variant Detection (legacy) and Quality-based Variant Detection (legacy) tools will be removed from the Server and Workbenches in March 2017.

     Support for some older operating systems (OS), listed below, will be discontinued in March 2017. Software released at that time and later may still run without issue, but problems experienced due to using an unsupported OS will not be addressed. If you are concerned about the proposed change, please contact our Support team (, letting them know the OS being used and the products you are running on that OS.


    Windows: Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008


    Mac: Mac OS X 10.7 and 10.8


    Linux:  Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 and 11 and Fedora 6 through 21
