We are interested in collecting more information about the user, e.g.
which lab they're part of etc, as they register to use our local mirror of
galaxy. Is there an easy way to add these fields to the registration
page; is it also easy to store these values to the (galaxy) database?
I would like to use MySQL instead of sqlite to store my data. I coudn't
find on the Galaxy web site a HOWTO or some guidelines to do it. I only
found some lines that might need to be changed/enabled in the
#database_file = database/universe.sqlite
database_connection = mysql:///galaxy
#database_engine_option_echo = true
#database_engine_option_echo_pool = true
#database_engine_option_pool_size = 10
#database_engine_option_max_overflow = 20
Could you point out to some doc or briefly describe what I need to do in
order to go for mysql?
Are there any plans to support other DBMS's (like Oracle for instance)?
I recently came to know about NGS analysis on galaxy during ISMB.
Getting excited I tried couple of things basically to play with it.
Few comments : I may have interepretted something described below in a
wrong way. My apologies before hand.
On a standalone installation of galaxy while I was trying to explore
one FASTQ(sequence) file. It takes considerable (> 20 min) for a fastq
file to get uploaded (2 GB). I am not sure what is the rationale
behind that. Ideally I think there should be no need to upload such
heavy files into the workspace. They could actually be used straight
away by the path specified. Also is there any way to access the
scripts for analysis on the command line. I know this undermines the
main aim of working with galaxy but rite now I am concerned about the
I will be happy to discuss more about this in case you have some
comments/questions for me.

So you can have tabular datasets, and you can add a datatype that
subclasses tabular and adds column definitions.
Is there a way of using tabular data with column headings without
defining the datatype, i.e. getting galaxy to recognise that first
line is a header and should be used as column titles?
When running a grouping on a data set via the Join, Subtract, Grouping
menu, I receive this error.
An error occurred running this job: *Traceback (most recent call last):

from rpy import *
ImportError: No module named rpy
*I'm having the hardest time figuring out which R version with what version
of Rpy to use. So far I've tried rpy-1.0.3, rpy2-2.0.6, with Rpackages
2.7.2 and 2.9.1. I've gotten both rpackages to compiled with the
--enable-R-shlib option and I have put it in my $PATH. However, when trying
to install either of they rpy packages, they complain about missing header
file RGraphics.h, Rdevices.h, and more. Does anyone have a known good
configuration to get this module working with galaxy? Which R package with
which rpy version should I be using?
Dear Galaxy team,
i would like to work on a few genomes that do not seem to be available
on the system. Is it possible, and if yes how can i integrate those on
