That's a good idea. I hadn't thought of that. But, I'm also looking for
something a little different. With a link like that you get the data of the
dataset, but I'd like a link that would get me into the main galaxy 3-column
display with that dataset somehow displayed. So, I'd be seeing the page
with the main header, the tools on the left, something in the middle, and on
the right, the dataset would appear somewhere in the history--either alone
as a new history, in the context of some existing history where it already
resides, or ...?
This way, I can not just download but also work with it further in Galaxy
Hope this makes it clearer.

Datasets can be linked to directly via the url for the 'eye' icon, for
Although you may be trying to do something more here, but I am not
understanding the question. Can you clarify if this is the case?
