I have fetched a duplicate reference genome, is it possible to remove it?

There is no automatic way to remove reference genomes using a Data Manager at this time. However, this is functionality that the team is considering adding in. For now, the duplication can be either left in place (it shouldn't harm anything) or the genome can be removed by altering the files/tables directly as an administrator on the command-line (if you familiar with the data structure). That said, it is probably best just to simply leave the extra genome alone since the removal process is non-trivial and a problem could be accidentally introduced.

If our team has other suggestions, we will post an update to this reply.

Thanks, Jen, Galaxy team

I just ran into a problem caused by duplicate entries. It caused error for RNA STAR index builder. see the post here

The information is stored in all_fasta.loc, which, in my case is located at ~/galaxy-dev/tool-data/ )

You can remove duplicate entries by editing the file.

Do you need to change something in the galaxy database to make it properly ?

No. After I edited the file, I clicked the reload all_fasta tool data table under Data Manager : all_fasta and it appears normal.
