Though I am a fairly intensive galaxy user though I had never seen an explanation of what the scratchbook was until I sawe a tweet about it a while ago. Now I could not live without. Yet even when I search the wiki I cannot find any mention of it (thought there are 2 short posts to biostar).
In case you do not know, it is activated by the little 3x3 grid symbol in the upper right corner, next the usage number. If you punch this then it goes yellow. Then every dataset eye that you punch will popup as a window allowing you easily compare multiple datasets at the same time. A really useful feature whoever implemented it. Punch the 3x3 icon again to hide the windows.
Here is my question to justify this post, I have just noticed that on my galaxy server (not usegalaxy.org) there are new options for the tool AddOrReplaceReadGroups add or replaces read group information (Galaxy Tool Version 1.136.0)(at least I think they are new).
Specifically 'autoasign' readgroup @RG , sample @SM and library @LB . I am guessing these options are taking the info from elsewhere (maybe the dataset name), which would be really really helpful.
Is there any description of the 'autoasign' option??
