Thanks for the info Dan. I've explored using bed12, but I have a few questions.

1. When attempting to use 'bed12' or 'Bed12' as a file type in a test, I get the following error:


Exception: {u'message': {u'type': u'error', u'data': {u'file_type': u"An invalid option was selected for file_type, u'Bed12', please verify.", u'files_metadata': [u"An invalid option was selected for file_type, u'Bed12', please verify."]}}}

2. I see that Bed12 is in the datatypes_conf.sample file. Is there a way to add a converter for that datatype? Perhaps something like: https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/ToolShedDatatypesFeatures#Including_datatype_converters_and_display_applications? My concern is that since it already exists, I wouldn't be able to add a converter. Also, the sniffer doesn't seem to work (it just finds the files as "bed", thus my desire to specify ftype in tests).

Thanks,
Lance

Hi Lance,

FWIW, there is an existing bedstrict and bed12 (and bed6) datatypes in Galaxy. The strict datatypes are currently usually created by implicit datatype converters and are most often used by some external display applications that need standards conforming files. bed6/12 are subclasses of bedstrict. They can of course be consumed or created by any sort of tool. Please let us know if we can provide additional information.


Thanks for using Galaxy,

Dan

If not, what would be the best way to go about doing this? Making it part of the core galaxy (which would allow multiple tools to share the same data type definitions) or making it part of a toolshed tool (which I'm not sure how to do)? BTW, I'm thinking about RSeQC at the moment, but I know other tools use/require this format.
