Hi All: Compressed files used to be decompressed in galaxy after uploading. Recently, the compressed files (gz files) are failed to be decompressed after uploaded into Galaxy. Is it a common problem or just happened to me? Do I need to unzip files before uploading or manually decompress files using some galaxy tools? Thanks!
This is now fixed on usegalaxy.org.
They way it works now is that .gz files do not uncompress on upload but rather on tool run.
You can now select the
fastq.gz files as inputs for tools that expect
fastq and Galaxy will uncompress them before sending to the tool. See example below.
