I've just installed Galaxy in my server in order to run it locally
but there's a couple of tasks I haven't been able to complete, I hope
somebody could advice me on how to accomplish them:
I wanted to be able to have direct access to the contents stored in
my server, so when click on 'Get Data'; 'Upload File' I can get the
files stored in my server instead of the files stored in my personal
computer. Is this even possible? If not, what other options do I have if I
want to load heavy packages (~3 GB) without having to wait much?
I haven't been able to 'Edit' Workflows like in
the public server, I have been able to create them, but once I try
to edit them it just attempts to load the 'Workflow Editor' but it
never does. How can I solve this? Do I have to configure something
before attempting to do this?
Thanks in advance,

I am relatively new to Galaxy and couldn't find an explaination on how
you envision the concepts of users/groups/roles etc...
I am managing a Galaxy instance and have different groups of biologist
(users), who should all are allowed to see the data from that group.
Then I have a group of users who are not super users, but still should
be able to see data from different groups of biologistl; they should
also be able to upload data, other should not...
I would like to make sure that my understanding of groups and users is
the same as that of Galaxy and also would like to find explaination and
possibly example of how to use "roles" and potentially other tools.
Could you please point me to where in the documentation this explained?
I got the normalized values (FPKM) from cufflinks. And I want to get relative reads counts. How can I do that?
Another question: how does cufflinks handle isoform genes while calculating the reads counts? Or what papers can help me understand this?
Thank you very much!
In the new version of tophat they allow for over 3 mismatches in the initial alignment, however your server still gives an error if you attempt to move this over 3. This is problematic for trying to map RNAseq reads where there is moderate divergence between the RNA and the reference genome.
This is not strictly correct. Tophat/bowtie don't report mapping quality
values that are as meaningful as BWA, but there is some information in the
mapping quality values tophat reports. Tophat yields 4 distinct values for
its mapping quality values (you can do a "unique" count on the mapping
quality field of any SAM file from tophat to verify this):
255 = unique mapping
3 = maps to 2 locations in the target
2 = maps to 3 locations
1 = maps to 4-9 locations
0 = maps to 10 or more locations.
Except for the 255 case, the simple rule that was encoded by the authors is
the usual phred quality scale:
MapQ = -10 log10(P)
Where P = probability that this mapping is NOT the correct one. The authors
ignore the number of mismatches in this calculation and simply assume that
if it maps to 2 locations then P = 0.5, 3 locations implies P = 2/3, 4
locations => P = 3/4 etc.
As you can clearly see, then MapQ = -10 log10(0.5) = 3; -10 log10(2/3) =
1.76 (rounds to 2);
-10 log10(3/4) = 1.25 (rounds to 1), etc.

Tophat/Bowtie does not yield mapping quality, so, as per the SAM spec, that
field is set to 255, indicating that quality is unavailable.

the value of some mapping quality (the 5th column) is 255. What does it
mean? And I found these reads which have mapping quality 255 mapped to

it states that to upload fastaQ files bigger then 2Gb to use the
Galaxy FTP server, but when I log in , I can not see an access to the
FTP server in order to upload it, sorry it may be trivial. Please tell
me , thanks
I am pleased to announce that registration is open for the April 2012
GMOD meeting The cost for the meeting is $40 if you register before
March 7th and $50 after. The meeting will be held April 5-6 at
Georgetown University in Washington DC, right after the Biocurator
meeting. I am also pleased to announce that the keynote speaker will
be Deanna Church from the NCBI. In addition to the main meeting,
there will be a Galaxy workshop the evening of April 5.

i have created a script which calls a database function(sub_id) and this function returns multiple columns , say its return 12 columns in database , but when i created its tool(function) in galaxy , i am able to return only 1 column(username) in galaxy tool which is not desirable result for me.
i want to know how can i return all column from my database function(sub_id) and print its result in separate file(bed format) which should be shown history panel , here is my code
import sys, os.path, logging
from galaxy import eggs
from galaxy.model import *
from sqlalchemy import *
pkg_resources.require( "psycopg2" )
engine = create_engine('postgresql://postgres:@126.96.36.199:5432/users')
connection = engine.connect()
result_set = connection.execute( "select * from sub_id(5,10,10)" )
db = 
for row in result_set:
db += [(row ['username'],str(row[ 'userid' ]), False),]
columns = [int(x) for x in sys.argv.strip().split(',')]
for col in columns:
