I'm not exactly sure I follow.  If the first step in your workflow after the 
Input Dataset step is Bowtie, then you won't want to do this in the workflow, 
it should happen prior to that.  The workflow expects that you're supplying the 
correct format for that first step.

When you are first uploading the file you can specify at that time that it 
should be a fastqsanger file.  For datasets that are already in a history, you 
can click the pencil icon on the history item and change the datatype there 
without running the fastq groomer.

Let me know if I've misunderstood and this doesn't cover what you're looking to 

I think you have but it doesn't help. :-)

The issue is we get a lot of Illumina 1.3+ format FASTQ files and bowtie in Galaxy by default doesn't accept them although there is an option on the command line bowtie to read these. So I think the solution seems to be either hardwire the code in our local Galaxy instance to use the --solexa1.3-quals option or (probably more useful) put a drop down list in the web UI to allow the user to set the format of the fastq sequences on the bowtie tool.

Thanks for you help,
