Command Line Tools

CLC Command Line Tools is a client interface for products, allowing -based analyses, workflows, import and export, and various other data operations such as moving, renaming, and deleting data, to be run via the command line or included in scripts. It’s a counter-part to the Workbenches, which act as graphical clients for Servers. For the latest improvements click here.

Both QIAGEN Command Line Tools and the graphical QIAGEN Workbenches are available as clients to run tasks on the QIAGEN Server. Our recommendations for which of these two types of clients to choosing depends on your work tasks.
