Software Releases

An ARGO software release is a set of new features and bug fixes for the ARGO Data Platform. Software releases happen approximately every month.

February 7, 2022: File Entity Page and Open Access Variant Filtering​

Data Platform - 1.105.3 - API 3.28.2

New Features

  • A new File Entity page has been released that displays the metadata about a file. This page is accessible from the File Repository by clicking on a File ID. This page includes:
    • A file summary with a link to all files for the associated program.
    • Data analysis information, that include helpful links to documentation about the associated ARGO DNA pipeline workflow and version.
    • Some metadata about the associated donor, samples, and specimens for the file.
    • The ability to download a manifest for the file.
  • The Program Dashboard has been updated to prepare for the Open Access Variant Filtering workflow:
    • Once a program has raw reads that are processing in the DNA pipeline, the status of the Open Access VF workflow will be reported on the donor summary table and in the molecular chart (if that donor meets the tumour/normal pair requirements).
  • File Repository improvements have been made, which include:
    • Adding the File ID column to the table, that links to the file entity page.
    • Improving the file metadata that displays in the search facet result suggestions.
    • Making the graphs interactive to filter the file table.
    • Adding a loading indicator to the download action for user feedback.
    • Adding a timestamp to the end of the manifest file name, in order to make downloads unique on a user's computer.

Bug Fixes

  • Some Program Dashboard bugs have been fixed allowing the correct DNA pipeline data to be reported on the molecular summary chart and the donor summary table.

    • Donor molecular summary chart showing molecular processing progress over times, working towards having completeness for all committed program donors.
    • Updated column in the Donor Summary table showing real-time tracking of the progression of a specific donor through the DNA-Seq Analysis Pipeline.
  • Two new clinical data entities can be submitted through the Clinical Submission
    • Family History: A donor's familial relationships and familial cancer history.
    • Immunotherapy: Treatment regimen details of immunotherapy drugs.

Bug Fixes

Initial Software Release

Data Platform v1.55.0 - API v3.2.0

Release Date: June 19, 2020

New Features

This is the first release of the ARGO Data Platform. Major features include:

  • Clinical Data Submission: The ARGO Data Platform is open for data submission for registered programs. Registered programs can begin submitting clinical data through the Program Services area. Programs that have not registered should contact the DCC.
  • Program Management: For submitting programs, access to program submission and data can be managed from the Program Services area. This includes the ability for program administrators to review a program profile, as well as add and remove program members.
  • File Repository: Users can browse the complete ARGO data set using the File Repository. Files of interest can be downloaded, provided that access to controlled data has been confirmed. To access controlled data, please see the DACO application process here, or apply for DACO approval here.
