Uno-Choice: Our first user contributed plug-in

20 March 2014 by BioUno team

Uno-Choice has been released and is our first user contributed plug-in. This plug-in was proposed by Ioannis Moutsatsos, and has been described as a “proposal (…) for selecting one or multiple parameters. Attempting to fill the gaps left by current plugin options”.

Uno-Choice Plug-in

Version 0.1 is able to add dynamic parameters to your Jenkins jobs. You have the ability to create multi selects from Groovy scripts. How cool is that? If you miss anything in Jenkins UI for your research in bioinformatics, please feel free to submit your issues and we will try to help ya.

More plug-ins released

19 March 2014 by BioUno team

In the past days two more plug-ins were released to our update center. The plug-ins are CLUMPP plug-in and Structure Harvester plug-in. Before that the first plug-ins released were the Structure and PBS plug-ins.

Structure Harvester is a Python utility with a web interface. It is useful to extract relevant data from Structure. CLUMPP is used usually after Structure and Structure Harvester. It is able to permute the clusters output by independent runs so that they match up as closely as possible.


Both plug-ins use Builders, similar to the wrappers in Galaxy, and let you add build steps to call the tools.

Stay tuned for more plug-ins!
