February 2024 Product Release Notes

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:

  • Jupyter Image Upgrade - We recently upgraded our Jupyter image with upgrades from Python 3.7 to Python 3.10, and Hail to 0.2.126. To learn more about this image upgrade please see here
  • Hotfix to Variant Annotation Table - we released a hotfix to the All of Us v7 Variant Annotation Table (VAT). Please see this support article to learn more. 
  • Java upgraded to 17
  • Variant Search in the Cohort Builder - We have added a new variant search feature in the Cohort Builder in which you can select all participants with Structural Variant data or select participants with SNP/Indel Variants. To learn more, see this support article here: Variant Search within the Cohort Builder

Bug Fixes

  • Temporal Feature Toggle - there was a bug with the value input field for ‘X or more days after’, ‘X or more days before’ or ‘On or within X days of’ in which an app error occurred every 2 API calls on the group count call. This has been resolved. 
  • Persistent disk deletion - users were unable to delete persistent disk when their initial credits were exhausted. You can now delete PDs even if you have run out of credits. 
  • App deletion with workspace deletion - If users had a workspace with running apps, the workspace could not be deleted without deleting any user created runtimes. This has been resolved. Apps will now delete upon workspace deletion. 
  • Environment deletion - we now support runtime deletion from paused, running, or error states. 



As always, please contact support@researchallofus.org if you have any questions or concerns with our most recent changes. Thank you for your support of the All of Us Research Program and Researcher Workbench!
