Hi everyone,

We are running a local version of galaxy off of our server. What is the best way to load fasta files into my history to use as my reference genome? I've tried to go to UCSC main from the galaxy menu options to upload but I do not see fasta files. I only am able to get BED files. Thank you for your help.

To use a Custom Reference genome, obtain the fasta version of the genome from UCSC "Downloads" area. Instructions are provided within each directory as a "readme" file.

Once you have it, make sure your local is configured for FTP, then FTP file to Galaxy. Use the Upload tool to move it from the FTP staging area into a History.

The other option is to install the genome directly into your server as a build-in genome and then build indexes. The "Data Manager" tools in the Tool Shed can help with this.

Best, Jen, Galaxy team
