Apps are the mechanism you use in the DE to submit your analysis. See Using the Apps Window and Submitting an Analysis for information on submitting an analysis and navigating within the Apps window.

You can view information about the app interface and the tool (executable or binary) used for the app in the Information window.

For an overview of the Apps window menus, see Using the Apps Window and Submitting an Analysis.

Viewing an app

Once you have identified the app to use, click it to open the app window.

Each app has a basic set of standard interface elements, as shown in this example of FASTX quality filter:


App name, as defined by the app's integrator.


Window icons.



  • Contents of each panel are defined by the integrator who created the app. The first panel is where you enter specifics about the analysis, including the analysis name, description, selected output folder, and whether to have input files returned with the analysis output files.
  • Note the red asterisks * on the second and third panels, indicating that they contain a required field. Each required field also has a red asterisk.


Click to open or close a panel.


Click to launch the analysis. Note that you must complete all required fields in the analysis before the analysis can be launched.
