Sure, thanks for getting in touch!

That I don't understand?
Salmon is using this one here, isn't it?
What he means, I think, is the table to build the index from. Data managers that
take a transcriptome as input get it from the all_fasta table, I think that is what he
means by the genomes table.
As I said at some point I also thought it may be useful to have a separate table (e.g
all_transcriptomes) so that the genome and transcriptome entries of the same build
don't get mixed. I think it would be good to have a way of listing only the
transcriptomes from the all_gff but that would requiere some kind of standard on the
naming to filter. We had this in our instance at some point but didn't help at all so
I just modified the data manger to use the all_fasta and that is what I published.
So, @Christopher ...having a separate table is not the solution although it would be
easier for the GUI. For now just giving the entries a descriptive name to indicate the
entries correspond to a transcriptome is enough and works ok for us. In any case this is
not for users and at least for us its all handled through the API so, again, it's just
a matter of taking care of the entries names and you are fine with using the all_fasta

Do you mean this one?

If you can, please feel free to create PRs to the repositories, so
can all reviewed it. And then, when we merge, it gets automatically
updated to the Tool Shed :)
As Björn said, if that's the one you are talking about please create a PR or an isssue
or contact me.
