Hi all,

I've been using Galaxy to analyze my ChIP-seq data, and have managed to get the program to call narrow peaks when I uploaded my bam files. I want to call broad peaks as well though, and the bedgraph files I upload onto the Galaxy disk are not being recognized by the MACS2 bdgbroadcall program. Am I uploading the files to the wrong spot, or otherwise missing something very obvious?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Jennifer,

Thanks for your quick reply. The issue is that when I upload the bedgraph files, the bdgbroadcall "MACS score in bedgraph" section says "no bedgraph dataset available". The files I'm uploading are definitely bedgraph files, so I don't think it's a format issue. Does the MACS tool need to generate a bedgraph from a bam file itself, which it can then use as input in this program (i.e. externally uploaded files are not recognized)?

Is the datatype metadata attribute assigned as bedgraph for the input datasets? And these not found by the tool form? This is distinct from confirming the actual format. The link above explains how to assign or modify datatype.

I cannot reproduce this independently with inputs having the datatype assigned at Are you working somewhere else?
