The tools on http://usegalaxy.org (Galaxy Main) have been deprecated. Most should still work but if server issues come up, we will not be fixing these going forward. I suggest reviewing the best practice GATK protocols at the Broad web site and picking the right path for your analysis goals.
I should let you know that the GATK tools on Main are indexed for the human genome hg_g1k_v37 and SnpEff is indexed on main for the human genome hg19. These are incompatible and using hg19 as a custom reference genome with the GATK tools will exceed compute resources for certain tools.
If you need to, or want to, the newer versions of the GATK pipeline tools are available in the Tool Shed for use in a local or cloud Galaxy. Please note that there is no data manager as these tools are not fully supported due to licensing restrictions, so install data will be manual (using the GATK resource bundle). SnpEff is also available in the Tool Shed. There is a data manager available for this tool.
There are other tool options for variant calling on Main, please see:
The second includes some tutorials for GATK, but many of these are a bit older or may use the newer version of the tools not found on Main. Because of this, I am not sure how many are still valid for use on Main. But others cover variant analysis that utilizes different tools, many of which are on Main, the rest would be in the Tool Shed.
Hopefully this helps, Jen, Galaxy team
