Hi Jen,
Thanks again.

Just to make it clear: if all the options are not present on galaxy but only 
some of them, does this mean that the absent ones have been set by galaxy dev? 
are these to be considered best settings not worth changing? I would like to 
learn a bit more and "play" with all options but if some of them wont affect 
the final reaults then is not worth changing them.

Subject: Tophat/Cuff parameters


Yes, this is correct, not all parameters can be adjusted in the UI. Many can, 
especially with Tophat, but not all. The list of implemented parameters that 
will match the documentation is listed at the bottom of each of these tools. 
The UI form itself up top may have a slightly different human readable name, 
but most will include the parameter name "-r", etc.

To see all of the parameters on the forms:
1. Tophat/2 - open "TopHat settings to use: Full parameter list"
2. Cufflinks/merge/compare/diff - open or modify any listed on form to see full 

This tool is in the Tool Shed (http://usegalaxy.org/toolshed), so if you had 
programming resource available, then these could certainly be modified. 
Development questions can go do the 
galaxy-...@bx.psu.edu<mailto:galaxy-...@bx.psu.edu> mailing list, but really 
the best place to start is in our wiki:

It would be really helpful if you sent questions directly to the 
galaxy-u...@bx.psu.edu<mailto:galaxy-u...@bx.psu.edu> mailing list going
