Version 1.3.3

Release date: 29.05.2024


This release brings minor improvements to exports.

All changes

  • Changed tsv export to using csv format.
  • Fixed gene panel name instead of description in export.
  • Various fixes and code improvements.

Version 1.3.2

Release date: 15.02.2024


This release brings improvements to editing large gene panels, including bug fixes and faster navigation.

All changes

  • Disabled navigation buttons on all pages and changes on the Edit page until data is fully loaded/refreshed. This prevents unexpected loss of edits.
  • Removed unnecessary saves and disabled Save button if there are no changes to save. This improves navigation speed.
  • Added spinner to the Name page while loading data.
  • Various fixes and code improvements.
  • Sub-command against-folder is now implicit when invoking gpb diff. Sub-command create-drafts is now an option --create-drafts.

Version 1.3.1

Release date: 06.02.2024

All changes

  • Added option to set inheritance mode SMu (somatic mutation) manually.

Version 1.3.0

Release date: 01.02.2024


This release brings a number of improvements to the process and documentation for updating reference data in GPB (gene names, transcripts, inheritance modes and PanelApp panels); see User manual and CLI Docstrings.

All changes

  • Added CLI commands to produce a diff with an overview of all changes introduced by reference updates using the CLI tool (gpb diff against-folder <folder>). The diff can also be run together with a reference update (gpb update), either between existing gene panels in GPB before and after a reference update (--diff), or with gene panels in GPB against a folder with previous exports (--diff-against-folder <folder>). Two files are created:
  • A table with all changes, with possibilities for sorting by severity of change.
  • A summary file with counts of changes in each gene panel.
  • Added CLI commands to assign new, bumped draft versions to any changed panels (including ongoing drafts) (gpb diff create-drafts <folder>).
  • Added a global flag to the CLI tool to run commands without modifying the database (gpb --dry-run). This gives the ability to check for potential issues with e.g. a reference data update before applying changes.
  • mtDNA genes are now excluded from exports by default, but can be included using the flag --include-mtdna with gpbuilder export genes.
  • Various fixes and code improvements.

Version 1.2.1

Release date: 21.11.2023

All changes

  • Improved UI performance on the View and Select pages.

Version 1.2.0

Release date: 14.11.2023

All changes

  • Added more translations of inheritance from OMIM. Note: All X-linked inheritance modes from OMIM, including "pure" XD and XR, are now translated to XD/XR in GPB. See also User manual and MR !268.
  • Fixed time-out issues when loading or exporting large gene panels.

Version 1.1.1

Release date: 23.08.2023

All changes

  • Fixed a bug causing inability to export gene panel from UI

Version 1.1.0

Release date: 23.06.2023

All changes

  • Changed fallback inheritance mode to N/A. This is to better separate out genes that have not been curated for inheritance (no configuration and no inheritance information in OMIM); see also the User manual.
  • Added CLI option --no-draft to export diff file without creating new drafts.
  • Added option -mq to set minimum mapping quality when calculating coverage; see Create coverage file.
  • Improvements to UI.

Version 1.0.0

Release date: 29.03.2023
