Parameter information

Ensuring transparency and reproducibility is crucial for every scientific analysis. For this purpose, GeneTrail logs and saves all processing steps, parameters and intermediate results. These can be accessed, visualized, and downloaded by the user. Among the available parameters are the versions of the used algorithms and underlying databases. For the algorithm these correspond to GitHub release tags.

How to access the parameters used to create a specific result?

The following slideshow depicts the different possibilities to access the parameter information page.

The parameter information page then lists the method and parameters used to produce a specific results.


Additionally all inputs and outputs of this processing step are shown. These can be visualized and downloaded. Accordingly all files also contain a link to the corresponding parameter page. This enables users to obtain and verify all processing steps and parameters used in an analysis.
