Released today in our v386 software is a new Track Hub setting "tableBrowser <off/on/noGenome>" for limiting access to data by the Table Browser within the UCSC Genome Browser.

tableBrowser <off/on/noGenome> [table1 ...]

The Table Browser typically allows querying and downloading of some or all of the raw data for a track. The off value blocks Table Browser access to datasets with restrictions (for example, those with confidentiality or licensing limitations). The noGenome value allows queries within specific genomic regions, but not genome-wide. By naming additional tables in this setting, access to those tables can be denied as well.

Example Track Hub Stanza:
