Due to increased security requirements for connection to our login and upgrade server, existing GenomeBrowse installations (version 2.0.1 or newer) will fail to login with a red error message: “SSH handshake failed”. Unfortunately, for the same reason you will not receive the update notification for the recently released GB 3.0.0 that resolves this issue with an updated configuration.

You may find that GenomeBrowse continues to work for you if you had previously logged in and don’t log out, but please take the time to update to GenomeBrowse 3.0.0 to prevent any inconvenience and future interruptions.

Download and install GenomeBrowse 3.0 here:

Thanks, Gabe
