I have BAM files loaded onto the main Galaxy server and I want to visualize them in my local copy of IGV. However, there is currently no "web current" or "local" hyperlinks next to the IGV option, there is only a link with the name of the genome that the BAM is aligned to i.e "Zebrafish (Zv9/danRer7)". I have not had this problem in the past, but the BAM files have come from a different source this time. Does anyone know if this is a Galaxy error or a problem with my BAM files?

Hi Chris,

We have restored the 'local' links for IGV display. The 'web current' link has been replaced with the Genome/Build Name as declared by IGV's available genome list, so the 'Zebrafish (Zv9/danRer7)' link is equivalent to the old 'web current'.

Please let us know if you encounter additional issues.


Thanks for using Galaxy,
