Thank you very much for your help with this - we got that settled. One
other question...we are importing sorted, indexed bam files into a galaxy
data library and we are not having galaxy copy over the files (they are
large) but rather just setting up galaxy such that it points to the
relevant directory. We noticed that the file (160 GB in size) is taking a
long time to import considering all it should be doing is creating a link.
When we examined processes that are running, we noticed that samtools is
running. From searching around a bit, it seems that Galaxy does this in
order to groom the bam file (sort/index) and ensure that it is in the
format necessary for galaxy to be able to interpret it. Is there any way
around this? We did the sorting and indexing prior to import and it's
taking quite a while to perform an unnecessary function. Thanks.
