Dear all,

I am new to DNA methylation analysis. I want to use Galaxy and I have seen some tutorials using Galaxy for this purpose.

I know that I have to add minfi_tools to my galaxy. However I do not know how to do it.

I found some instructions but I do not understand what exactly should I do.

Can anybody explain to me how to add this tool in to galaxy?

Thank you in advance

Are you an admin on your Galaxy server? If not, you can only install the minfi tool by asking the admin to do it for you.

Thanks.

But I am not sure if I understood what you mean.

By "admin" you mean that I have registered in to Galaxy? if it is, yes,I have Galaxy account, but minfi_tools is not present in the list of tools. If not, how can I ask admin to do it for me?

Thanks again for your help

If you don't know what I mean then the answer is "no". You'll have to find out who runs the Galaxy instance you're using and ask that person. If you're using the main usegalaxy.org instance, then I guess this is as good a place as any to ask, though it'd be faster to just directly use R (there's relatively little support for microarrays in Galaxy).

You can only add tools to Galaxy you control/own (are admin of) as Devon explained. The process is described here: https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Admin/Tools/AddToolFromToolShedTutorial
