The Data summary report in Partek® Flow® provides an overview of all tasks performed as part of a pipeline. This is particularly useful for report writing, record keeping and revisiting projects after a long period of time.
This user guide will cover the following topics:
Viewing the Data Summary Report
Click on an output data node under the Analyses tab of a project and choose Data summary report from the context sensitive menu on the right (Figure 1). The report will include details from all of the tasks upstream of the selected the node. If tasks have been performed downstream of the selected data node, they will not be included in the report.
Each task will appear as a separate section on the Data summary report (Figure 2). The first section of the report (Sample data) will summarize the input samples information. Click the grey arrows (/ ) to expand and collapse each section.
