Hi Katherine

I presume this is related to the tool described here (https://biostar.usegalaxy.org/p/18319/)? I think there is general interest in the creation of a tool like this - see the recent email from Miu ki Yip. If you could share the code and XML (e.g. via GitHub) perhaps we could assist with what you are trying to write.

Maybe sharing your tool XML file would be best - is it on GitHub?
