Thanks James. I have looked at the information you linked to. I just would like clarification on one point. If our developers follow the information in the DATABASE paper, will our data source be integrated into the public galaxy server (http://usegalaxy.org) and be included as part of the downloadable package?
That was my main concern.

The protocols are described here: http://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Admin/Internals/Data%20Sources Note that page also links to a paper in the journal DATABASE which is entirely about data source integration. -- James Taylor, Assistant Professor, Biology/CS, Emory University On Tue, Mar 12, 2013 at 8:11 AM, Fingerman, Ian (NIH/NLM/NCBI) [E] <ian.finger...@nih.gov<mailto:ian.finger...@nih.gov>> wrote: 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 users. 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.
