The Get Data | Get Microbial Data tool is nice, but is limited to a
subset of the older genomes among those that are currently available.
It should surely be possible to get any accession directly from NCBI,
but I don't see a tool to do that. The best I can do is to download a
file to my computer and then upload it again to Galaxy. Am I missing
On a related point, I don't see GenBank listed as a format for

We agree that it would be useful to have a tool designed to directly
extract sequence data from NCBI/Genbank, but there are some practical
reasons why we are currently unable to design one. We can offer two
1 - For the files available via HTTP/FTP, the most direct option is to
paste that URL into the second box on the tool "Get Data -> Upload
from your computer".
2 - For "data sheet" document style Genbank format, it should be
possible to design a workflow using the text manipulation tools to
out sequence (and/or other data).
This is an important data source and we are sorry that we cannot help
a more direct way right now,
