v2.1.0 Release

ยท 3 min read

We are pleased to present 2.1.0! This release adds some significant new features including:

  • Multi-wiggle tracks - This allows, for example, multiple bigwig files to be displayed in a single track with synchronized scalebar settings. See multi-wiggle docs for more info.
  • Undo and redo functionality, let's you undo an operation in the UI e.g. closing a view, closing a track can be recovered
  • An alert when the dotplot view renders features that go beyond the bounds of the selected region. This is often an indication that the wrong assembly is being used or the query and target are backwards

Example links for multi-bigwig sessions

Multi-row plot showing 21 ENCODE bigWig tracks

Overlapping "xyplot" rendering multiwiggle rendering mode with "emphasised" points showing tumor vs normal coverage

Dotplot view showing warnings from rendering dotplot, generally due to the wrong assemblies being compared. Screenshot also shows the dropdown menu to choose whether mouse click-and-drag pans the view or selects a region

Undo and redo buttons in the Tools menu, also accessible from keyboard shortcuts ctrl+z/ctrl+y and cmd+z/cmd+shift+z. The Undo/Redo function is available in jbrowse-web and jbrowse-desktop currently


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.
