I am trying to download

Brachypodium distachyon strain Bd21 chromosome 2, Brachypodium_distachyon_v2.0, whole genome shotgun sequence

from NCBI

NCBI gives me a result in compressed format (.gz)

Do I need to uncompress this to get it in to Galaxy?

How can I get this into a local library so that it will be available for multiple analyses?

Is there a Galaxy site that works best?

If using the free public server Galaxy Main (, the dataset can be uploaded in gz format. It will uncompress automatically and can be used directly from the history as a custom genome to map. To assign as a "database", promote the custom genome to a custom build. The fasta genome itself can be copied between histories (without using additional account quota disk) and shared publically. The "build" (database) is available to just you, but others can create their own. How to:

Many other public Galaxy sites will allow the same actions. List:

If working on a local/cloud Galaxy where you are admin, the same actions are available or the data could be loaded into a Shared Data Library and used from there. Options:

Hopefully this helps! Jen, Galaxy team
