Good Evening Jose:

Please note the types of graphing formats you can display at UCSC:

I would recommend converting your bedgraph file to a bigWig file and display
that via a remote URL.  This would be your most efficient mechanism of display.

Subject: Re: [galaxy-user] Displaying bed files in ucsc

I changed it to bedgraph and can no longer view in UCSC (the button to view in 
UCSC was not there anymore). I had it in bed format subsequently and put in a 
header. I was looking at the bedgraph/wiggle header documentation on UCSC but 
don't find any that describes displaying scores in histogram format. I saw that 
we can change colour the intensity of the bars based on scores though.

Hi Jose, 

What you have described is a "bedgraph" file. Perhaps changing the file 
extension to "bedgraph" will be enough, if not you might be required to enter a 
track line. See UCSC for details.

Hello, I have a bed file in this format: chr# start end scores. I tried to view 
it in ucsc main but it showed only where the fragments are(based on the start 
and end coordinates) with numerical scores beside each fragment. How do I view 
the file as a histogram format? What format will I need to convert the file to 
and where can I do the conversion? Any advise is greatly appreciated!
