We have a few updates to share from the past two months. Please see the list below for information about these updates:
Researcher Workbench Features:
- New Features in the Cohort Builder - We have added a two fold feature to the Cohort Builder: “Concept Set” and “Concept Quick Add.” The “Concept Set” feature allows you to add concepts and create a concept set to then add to your cohort. The “Concept Quick Add” feature allows you to add concepts based on concept ID.
- The Researcher Workbench team released updates to the short-read WGS (srWGS) smaller callsets to improve usability and to add missing variants (8%) to the ACAF callset.You can read more about these changes here.
- Re-attaching Persistent Disk (PD) - when attempting to re-attach a PD to a new runtime, some users are unable to create a new runtime. This has been resolved.
- Temporal Feature - there was an issue with accessing the temporal feature of the Cohort Builder for the exclusion criteria. This has been resolved.
- The Featured Workspace “Best Practices for AoU Data Science” is now available! This Featured Workspace includes tutorials on best practices of querying All of Us data, using environment variables, and logistics regression.
- We added two new tutorial notebooks to our “Data Wrangling” Featured Workspace - “How to perform logistics regression” in Python and “How to perform propensity score matching” in R. Learn more here.
