v2.0.0 8 May 2020
Tapestri Designer v2.0 Key Highlights:
1. Expanded hg19 genome coverage: In previous versions of Tapestri Designer, we only supported the CDS regions of hg19 (GRCh37). Version 2.0.0 supports both non-CDS and CDS regions.
Users can submit non-CDS regions in any supported target format, except by definition gene, and Designer will resolve it to the corresponding regions and design for it. The same is true for the mm10 (GRCm38) genome.
If a panel includes any targets in non-CDS regions, however, the processing time will increase because the amplicons must be designed from scratch instead of using cached amplicons.
2. Support for the mm10 genome: Tapestri Designer now supports the design of primers and amplicons for the mouse genome mm10 (GRCm38). To see which chromosomes are supported, see this FAQ.
Only region target types are supported. At this time, gene, dbSNP, and HGVS targets are not supported. COSMIC does not support non-human data, so COSMIC variants are not relevant for mm10.
The processing time is longer because the amplicons must be designed from scratch instead of using cached amplicons.
