· 3 min read

This is the release of v1.5.1 with a bunch of small improvements and bugfixes, including...

Cytoband overview

We can now display the cytoband data for your genome assembly in the linear genome view overview, and this will now be available for hg19 and hg38 assembly configs on JBrowse Desktop

This can also appear in SVG exports

Plugins can integrate with "Add track" workflow better

Plugins that register new adapter types can integrate with the "Add track" workflow by registering themselves for a particular file type or file extension with the Core-guessAdapterForLocation

Open plaintext FASTA file on JBrowse desktop

Users can now open a plain FASTA instead of an indexed FASTA on JBrowse desktop, and it will create a .fai index on the fly


To install JBrowse 2 for the web, you can download the link above, or you can use the JBrowse CLI to automatically download the latest version. See the JBrowse web quick start for more details.
