Qlucore Omics Explorer V3.6

Qlucore has released version 3.6 of its Qlucore Omics Explorer (QOE) data analysis software. QOE provides fast, simple, visual analysis of measured data from a wide range of sources and instruments. It ships in a base module with an option to add a module with extensive functionality for next-generation sequencing data analysis. The program integrates well with workflows and through the Python-based template functionality it is possible to control the program through a script and to configure well-defined analysis steps. V3.6 has several new features including the direct import of single-cell data and improved survival calculations using hazard ratios; the addition of one more classifier method (gradient-boosted decision trees) in the machine learning module; and an expanded suite of standard templates, including templates for direct import of single-cell data from 10x Genomics and one for direct download from The Cancer Genome Atlas.
