These type of questions--questions about to use Galaxy--are best directed to
the galaxy-user list, so I've moved it there.

This is correct: Galaxy now supports an arbitrary number of input files to
cuffcompare, making repeated merging unnecessary.

Cuffdiff claims to support biological replicates, and, as you found, Galaxy
provides the infrastructure to specify replicates to Cuffdiff. I do not know
the statistical methods used for analysis, but this would be a good question
to ask either on seqanswers or on the new tophat-cufflinks mailing list:

This is because the p_id attribute is not being attached to the
combined_transcripts dataset produced by Cuffcompare. This problem is due to
your reference file being incorrect -- it should be dataset 81, your
reference annotation.
