Hi Sarah,

An external display application configuration was recently added for the
BAM datatype for IGV. In your local Galaxy instance, you can enable it by
removing the comments from around:
<!-- <display file="igv/bam.xml" /> -->
in your datatypes_conf.xml file for the BAM datatype. This will let users
view in a local IGV instance or using web start.

Thanks for using Galaxy,
