I am wondering if there is a way to directly access data sets created and 
stored on Galaxy. A >50Gb set of raw sequencing results was uploaded via FTP, 
and is currently being groomed and clipped. Following the clipping, we would 
like to download a copy to a local cluster for analysis with tools not 
available on Galaxy.

The only way I can find to do this is to download via the web interface to a 
local computer, then copy the data to the cluster. I'd rather not move the data 
twice if I can help it. Is there a way that I can access Galaxy datasets via 
the command line on our cluster, perhaps making the data available via FTP, so 
that I can directly download it to the place it needs to be?

Thank you,
