Hi Greg,

At the very top of this wiki:
http://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Admin/NGS%20Local%20Setup

is a link to a related wiki:

http://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Admin/Data%20Integration

that has additional required set-up info. This page also includes information about how to rsync the indexes currently available on the public Main server. These are planned to be updated with many new genomes and indexes over the next few weeks, so check back in mid January if you do not find what you want now and do not want to build it yourself. Releasing Bowtie2 indexes (also used by Tophat2) into this area is planned to start in later Jan, pending any issues, but to build yourself, the basic guidelines for Bowtie can be followed with adjustments to use " bowtie2-build" and " bowtie2_indices.loc". The Bowtie2 source tool documentation has the exact options and should be used along with our guidelines (this is true for all tools that require indexes).

If you choose not to populate genomes as an admin, users can use most tools with a 'custom reference genome'. Please be aware that running tools this way will take more processing resources and storage disk for user's histories. The size of the genome is the primary factor to consider - some mix of built-in and custom genomes may be good solution. Also, FTP upload will almost certainly need to be enabled. Complete "how-to" details from a user's perspective are here:

Hopefully this gives you an option that will work,

Hi all,

I'm finishing up installing Galaxy on our local cluster.

I'm at this step regarding setting up reference genomes:
http://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Admin/NGS%20Local%20Setup#Setting_Up_the_Reference_Genomes_for_NGS_Tools

But it looks like a whole lot of manual work that needs to be done by
a system administrator.  I was kind of expecting this would be
something end users would be able to do.  I'm actually not sure we
have the resources for a sys admin to install all of these reference
genomes every time someone needs one.

I guess here are my questions:

Am I misunderstanding the process?

Is there a different way that normal users can add reference genomes instead?

Is there anything in the works that lets users easily add these?

Is there a way to use NGS tools without installing reference genomes?

Thanks,

Greg
