Please send your queries to one of our mailing lists -- galaxy-dev or galaxy-user --
rather than to individuals. That way, more people can see and help you with your
questions, you'll likely get a more timely response, and the mailing list archive can
serve as a useful repository. Your question about GFF to BED is best addressed to
galaxy-user (b/c it's about usage of Galaxy), and your question about Tophat is best
addressed to galaxy-dev (b/c it's about setting up a local Galaxy instance). Hence,
I've cc'd both lists.
Ok, on to your questions:
Maybe i can use the tophat anlone.
We've got a Galaxy wrapper ready for Tophat version 1.1+ ; it will likely be available
in galaxy-central this week. Once you update your version of Galaxy, you'll be able to
run Tophat in Galaxy.
But now i have a another question for giff to bed function.
i want to use gff-to-bed function after i run it, it seems that i got the results :
empty, format: bed, database: ?
Info: 0 lines converted to BED. Skipped 74166 blank/comment/invalid lines starting with
i am using gff3 file.and it is the first few lines.

This appears to be a valid GFF3 file and should work fine. We'll look into this and
get back to you.
