The tutorial you were looking at was made using one of our local Galaxy
instances, in advance of updating the main public server. The main server
already includes most of the tools used in the examples, but two of the
format conversion tools ("MasterVar to gd_snp" and "pgSnp to gd_snp") are
not posted there yet.
I apologize for the delay. We are in the process of moving some of the tools
from the Phenotype Association section of the toolbox to the Convert Formats
section, while simultaneously migrating those and the rest of the Phenotype
Association tools from their current, manually configured installation method
to the new Galaxy Tool Shed paradigm. We have encountered some technical
difficulties with that, but we hope to have the update accomplished within
the next few weeks.
If you need it sooner, let me know and I'll send you the underlying Perl
script for the "pgSnp to gd_snp" tool, so you can run that locally to
convert your file and then upload the output to your Galaxy history.
Thanks for your patience!
