We are going to add our gene prediction tool to Galaxy Main server, anybody
know whom we should contact?

My name is Johnathan Cooper-Knock, I am a clinical fellow based at the
University of Sheffield, UK.
I am trying to use Galaxy for analysis of DNA sequencing data and I have
run into a problem. I am trying to run the SAM/BAM Hybrid Selection Metrics
step on Galaxy (part of the Picard tools) but I can't find bait and target
bed files that Galaxy will accept. My library capture was performed using
the Aglilent All Exon V4 kit and I have uploaded the
'S03723314_Regions.bed' and 'S03723314_Covered.bed' files from '
https://earray.chem.agilent.com/suredesign/search.htm' but Galaxy does not
even seem to recognise them as options for entry. Is this a formatting
issue? Do you know where I can get ready formatted files?
I had fastq.gz files in an Amazon S3 bucket. I created a Galaxy on the Cloud
instance using CloudMan. I used GetData and pasted in the url's of the
fastq.gz files into Galaxy on the Cloud. They were successfully imported
into the session and converted to fastq's, it seems. However, at the next
step (fastq groomer), Galaxy on the Cloud appears to expect that the
imported and converted fastq files are in the same S3 bucket where the
fastq.gz files were. But, they are not there. I read somewhere in
documentation or notes that the data is actually in /mnt/galaxyData folder.
However, I am not sure how to point fastq groomer to this place in the web
interface or alternatively, I am not sure how to move the fastq's back to
the s3 bucket (w/o downloading and re-uploading which would be very
time-consuming). Thanks for any help you can provide.
What you have outlined below is perfect.
I wonder how hard it would be to design a few filters that only look a
certain genes and or filter model organisms out of the dataset.
For example, say you want only data for 16s or only gyrase, but no
/E.coli/ and no /Pseudomanas aeroginosa/

I am curious if you could tell me the way that I could add your nglims to my galaxy-dist production system. I have read your step by step procedure here: http://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Admin/Sample%20Tracking/Next%20Gen
but it didn't mention how to add it to the galaxy-dist. Do you have a patch name for it? Should I use hg pull or hg patch? Thanks
I have been mapping my RNA-seq data to mouse genome from a different mouse
strain using TopHat. I am wondering whether TopHat can take SNPs into
account during the alignment? ( using SNPs track as an optional input)?
Dear Galaxy managers,
I would like to ask about the queuing rules for the workflows before
processed on the server?
I use my customized Galaxy workflow which contains 22 following steps
(basically, filtering, trimming and format change of NGS data). I guess the
server is generally very busy during last weeks/months (?), so my job was
waiting about 24 hours in a queue (which would not be a problem), and then
the first step of the workflow was processed, but the following 21 is
again/still waiting (already for another couple of hours...). It makes me
wondering about the queuing rules because I expected that the whole
workflow is queued as one job.. Then my question is if the whole workflow,
once submitted, is listed in the queue, or does the following step queue
only after the previous step is finished (which would mean to wait the
whole queue for each step of the workflow...)?
I routinely used those wrokflows before (months ago) without any
I tried to search similar question in the archive before I posted this

I have a problem in galaxy to get host/domain name in two different pages.
First one is in the tool installation from toolshed, I got the error below,
The requested URL /admin_toolshed/prepare_for_install was not found on this server.
The second one is in the saved histories. When I click the buttons of the saved histories. I got the similar error like below.
The requested URL /history/list was not found on this server.
I haven't seen these any other pages yet.
My installation is working on LDAP authentication with Proxy. So, I could not find a place to set the domain or host name in these two places that they can actually find the requested URLs.
In the paster.log file. I don't get any error when I install a tool or go to another history. It doesn't report any error.
Thanks for your help,
