If you have a Galaxy installation and are based in Europe, then please keep
The Galaxy Team will be in Europe in late May for the 2011 Galaxy Community
Conference (GCC, http://galaxy.psu.edu/gcc2011/). Several team members are
available before and/or after the meeting to visit European Galaxy
installations to help with installation, configuration and tool
There are two important caveats:
1) *We need to hear from you as soon as possible*, and have plans more or
less *worked out by the end of Monday, 4 April*. We are planning to buy our
plane tickets on Tuesday.
2) *The host institution needs to pay all in-Europe travel costs*, including
the cost to get from the Netherlands to your site and back, and lodging and
transport costs while at your site. Galaxy will pay to get people to
Europe, but you need to get us the rest of the way.
Please let me know if you are interested or if you have questions.
PS: Early registration (save 20%) for the GCC ends 24 April.
I have a local instance of galaxy and after successfully running an NGS
analysis I am trying to save my BAM file to my local machine. When I click
on the save icon my Galaxy instance crashes with the following error. This
also happens when I try to save the SAM file. It does not happen when I
try to save a txt file.
python: ./Modules/cStringIO.c:419: O_cwrite: Assertion `oself->pos + l <
./run.sh: line 48: 19187 Aborted python
./scripts/paster.py serve universe_wsgi.ini $@
Something to do with base positions?
Thanks in advance for any help,
we stored a lot of peak-information in a database. to import these files into galaxy, i read the DataConnectionProtocol (https://bitbucket.org/galaxy/galaxy-central/wiki/DataSources) and i also took a look at the biomart.xml example
biomart does exactly what i want.
here is my full tool configuration xml-file:
<tool id="regionDb" name="RegionDb-Import">
<description>Import from regionDb</description>
<command interpreter="python">../data_source/data_source.py $output $__app__.config.output_size_limit</command>
<inputs action="http://localhost:8888/index.html" check_values="false" method="get">
<param name="GALAXY_URL" type="baseurl" value="/tool_runner" />
<param name="tool_id" type="hidden" value="regionDb" />
<request_param galaxy_name="URL" remote_name="URL" missing=""/>
<request_param galaxy_name="URL_method" remote_name="URL_method" missing="get" />
<request_param galaxy_name="name" remote_name="name" missing="Biomart test query" />
<data name="regionDb File" format="bed" label="regionDb import" />
**What it does**
content of http://localhost:8888/index.html:
<form method="POST" type="text" action="http://galaxy/tool_runner/regionDb?type=text&name=new%20history%20entry&U..." >
<input type="submit" value="Send to Galaxy"/>
i also tried a different action="http://galaxy/tool_runner?tool_id=regionDb&type=text&name=new%20history%2..." with the same error message (shown below).
what actually works is, if i try to receive biomart data with this request.
<form method="POST" type="text" action="http://gen43/galaxy/tool_runner/biomart?type=text&name=ne%20history%20ent..." >
<input type="submit" value="Send to Galaxy"/>
my question is: was there some extra hack to get the biomart tool to run? i found some lines in the lib/galaxy/web/controllers/tool_runner.py which confirm that assumption:
#Hack to get biomart to work, ideally, we could pass tool_id to biomart and receive it back
def biomart(self, trans, tool_id='biomart', **kwd):
"""Catches the tool id and redirects as needed"""
return self.index(trans, tool_id=tool_id, **kwd)

For a tool that I'm writing I would like to show or hide certain parameters based on what the user entered in other parameters. Normally I would use the conditional tag combined with a select menu which works fine in most cases.
However, I also use a selectbox with the following settings:
<param name="report_options" type="select" multiple="True" display="checkboxes" label=".." />
As far as I'm aware, it is impossible to use things like 'refresh_on_change' or making a conditional with it since multiple options can be selected.
Optimally what I would like to do is something like this (I know the syntax is incorrect):
#if "option1" in $report_options
#<param name="new_option1" type="text" />
#else if "option2" in $report_options
#<param name="new_option2" type="integer" />
But I tested it and the if/else stuff is ignored by Galaxy, is this due to the fact that the XML code is evaluated first and the Cheetah template only when the 'execute' button is pressed?
Another few small questions:
- When using the (deprecated) <page> tag, can I get a 'Previous' button?
- Where can I find instructions on the alternative of the <page> tag ("refresh_on_change")?
Thanks in advance.

Onderwerp: [galaxy-dev] DB access and passowrd field
I have some tools that generate mostly tabular output. The next step is to aggregate the data for complex filtering and analysis. In my view the best way to do by using a DB (MySQL in my case). Also in light of some data curation tools we use externally of galaxy.
Tools and cmd line wrappers can easily connect to a DB (another database than galaxy is using of course) when providing the details for access like address:port, username and password.
Is there any way to embed a text field for a galaxy tool that is of type password or blinded? Don't want to share user specific login details when sharing histories or galaxy pages. Or is this a bad thing to pursue anyway?
Thanks for any directions.
Hi all - I was about to update my local Galaxy installation, and went
back to the wiki to refer to how to do this
noticed a mistake.
Step 1 says to use "hg clone https://bitbucket.org/galaxy/galaxy-dist/"
Step 5 says "If you used the instructions shown on this bitbucket wiki
(eg hg clone https://[your id](a)bitbucket.org/galaxy/galaxy-central/ )..."
I think it would be better if step 1 was in sync with step 5.
How can I resolve the fact that I used Step 1 initially and now want to
update my instance of Galaxy?

I have two questions:
1) Where are workflows saved in the filesystem? Are they saved as xml
files (or something) that describes the structure of the
workflow/pipeline? (e.g. tools to run, parameters, etc.)
2) When a cluster is used, does a complete workflow run on one node or
is it possible that multiple tools in the same workflow are executed
in different nodes?
Thank you in advance!
We're developing alternative bowtie tools that more closely suit our needs, are we're happy to share (and get comments).
The main differences are:
1. separate tools for paired-end and single-end
2. the tools accepts FASTA, FASTQ in both Sanger and Illumina format (no more need for grooming). Illumina is the default for newly uploaded FASTQ files.
3. fewer visible options, only the most relevant ones are available (IMHO better organized)
4. optional output of non-mappers and maxed-out mappers as FASTQ files (to use in downstream analysis or remapping attempts)
5. allows users to to do "quiet" output (only aligned reads are reported in the SAM file).
6. allows users to specify custom options (free text field), for those who know what they are doing.
7. Outputs a sorted SAM file, and sorting is done using multi-threaded sort.
You can see the interface (but not run the tools) here:
The tools (XML & shell scripts) are available here:
Note about multithreaded bowtie:
currently the tools use 10 threads (hard-coded in the XML files) - easily changeable.
Note about the sorting:
The "sam_sort.sh" script requires the latest sort from coreutils-8.10 (which does multi-threaded sort).
The number of threads, maximum amount of RAM allowed for sort, and temporary storage directory are all hard-coded in the beginning of the script - easily changeable.
TopHat and Cufflinks tools will follow soon (if there's any interest).
Comments are of course welcomed, these are very much work-in-progress.
Where can I find information on setting up Galaxy to communicate directly
with a sequencer? I know of this place:
but it doesn't seem to be up to date since there are no Sequencer
Configuration options on my Admin page (instead External Services, which
only has ABI SOLID 3 type).
Your help is very much appreciated.
