Hi Jen,

The ability to use Python commands with the Compute tool seems to be a very 
well-hidden gem in Galaxy.  The problem with this nearly unmentioned gem is the 
sheer frustration felt when something that works on the Python command line 
fails on the Galaxy Compute tool.

What I would like to do is manipulate a column from a UCSC download that lists two or three codons separated by 
a comma, e.g.    AAC,GCG,  or  GGT, CAC, TAT,  .   The string-based split command  <  
c5.split(",").pop(1) > fails on this data because Galaxy assigned it a <list> type 
automatically. All of my attempts to change the data type to "string" have failed.

Any suggestions?
