Your turn

At this stage feel free to play with the targets and target levels to see the impact each has on achieving a stable solution. Before continuing with the next sections, take some time to explore the tools and features available in the Patchworks interface. Many of the buttons and controls behave in a similar way to other software packages, so you should be able to make good progress exploring on your own.

This completes the first part of the quick tutorial and tour of Patchworks.

The rest of the User Guide dives into greater detail about all the functions we have used, as well as information about the format of input files, how to prepare a dataset of your own and other supporting Patchworks applications. In the next chapter we will spend some time explaining some of the key concepts of how Patchworks operates. Following this we will have another Quick Tour that goes into more detail about the unique capabilities of the Patchworks model.
