>> Am I missing a converter?
Yes, you are missing the bed_to_bigwig converter.
If you haven't made changes to your datatypes_conf.xml file, you can just copy
datatypes_conf.xml.sample to datatypes_conf.xml to get the needed converters.
If you've made changes to datatypes_conf.xml, you'll need to manually add the
needed converters. We recently transitioned all the *_to_summary_tree
converters to *_to_bigwig, so you'll want to remove the summary_tree converters
and replace them with the bigwig converters.
>> And why would a BED file even needed to be converted?
Converter = indexer for visualizations. Datasets are indexed so that (a)
aggregate (coverage) data is readily available when viewing a large region and
(b) finding features in a small region (when zoomed in) is fast.
