I have a question regarding data sources currently available on the main 
instance of Galaxy  (https://main.g2.bx.psu.edu).  How can one get added as a 
new data source?  I work at the NCBI on the Epigenomics database 
(http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/epigenomics) .  We currently hold a large volume 
of NGS data in the form of wig files, and some users have expressed interest in 
using Galaxy for data analysis.    We provide an easy to use user interface for 
examining these data as seen here 
(http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/epigenomics/browse/) and currently host over 4200 
data tracks.

I think it would useful if we could integrate Galaxy functionality into our 
resource.  I also thing providing our resource as a "Data Source" would also be 
convenient for users less familiar with our database but are current Galaxy 

I have been looking through the Galaxy wiki and I am struggling to find 
documentation that details step-by-step, what exactly needs to be done.  One 
thing to note, I am not a developer, I'm the scientific lead for the project 
and my programming/developing skills are lacking.   I was hoping someone could 
point me to  thorough documentation mainly to pass on to developers on my team. 
  I guess also understanding my options with regards to integrating or 
interfacing with Galaxy would be very valuable to me too.

Thank you for any help/suggestions you may have.
