Thanks Jeremy,


I did what you suggested and now it no longer complains!

Not sure if I had edited datatypes_conf.xml but just copying the sample
worked and let's just hope I did not break any of my changes

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


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.
