I used samtools merge to merge new bam file. After that, I upload this file, but galaxy can not recognize it. The errors as follow:

This is a new Galaxy local? Or an existing one? Do other tools work?

To troubleshoot, make sure that you are running the latest build 15.07 and the samtools and picard have been installed from the Tool Shed (with managed dependencies). From a first look, it appears that samtools is missing (required).

Thanks and let us know how this goes, Jen, Galaxy team

Hi Jen, I am not sure whether it is new or old one.How I can check the version of galaxy? I did not install samtools or picard independently, only as appliance tool for Tophat2. How I update my local galaxy? Thank you very much for your great help. Best wishes   Hill
