Thanks for your reply Jen.
I managed to use Pileup-to-Interval (on my new strain) and then Extract Genomic
DNA but I'm not too sure what I got in terms of a FASTA file. What I am looking
for is a consensus file for my sequence that can be submitted to Genbank, not a
interval on a reference strain. Is that what this is returning? I haven't done
any alignement yet. Also because it uses samtools, it doesn't incorporate
indels found in my unknown strain...?
You mention using Genome Diversity, but it's not clear to me how extracting the
region flanking SNPs will get me the desired consensus sequence.
Right now I am using John Nash's pileup2fasta (which works great, thanks John!)
but I was hoping for something incorporated into galaxy.

One solution, if you want fasta sequence based on the reference genome
(could be a native Galaxy genome, a custom genome in your history, or
really any fasta file in your history as long as the mapped
"chromosomes" names are identical), is to use the tool "NGS: SAM Tools
-> Pileup-to-Interval". Then, to extract fasta sequence based on these
coordinates use the tool "Fetch Sequences -> Extract Genomic DNA".
This utilizes SAMTools, but is in the Galaxy public server and perhaps
this makes it an acceptable option.
If you are interested in examining the variation in your data vs the
reference, please see the tools under "NGS: Indel Analysis". Combined
with the tool "Genome Diversity -> Extract DNA flanking chosen SNPs"
this can incorporate your SNPs into the background reference to produce
novel fasta sequences.
If still needed, moving from FASTQ to FASTA in Galaxy is very simple
using the tool "NGS: QC and manipulation -> FASTQ to FASTA converter ".
If command line is your preference, all of Galaxy's tools can be run
there, too, using the source. http://getgalaxy.org
I will post these options at BioStar at the question you quoted, for
that user and others who may have a similar analysis project.
Apologies for the delay in reply. Please let us know if we can help again,
