Hi, I've tried to develop new tool based on getGenomicRatioSetFromGEO function from bioconductor-minfi package. It works for me on my computer but didn't work on galaxy and return Fatal error: Exit code 1 () Error: could not find function "getGenomicRatioSetFromGEO" Execution halted Is it R version issue or maybe you have some different ideas why my tool doesn't work?

You might need to add the correct R function/dependency to your tool wrapper, so that it is installed along with the tool (using conda). This will make it a more robust tool especially if you plan to contribute it to the tool shed. It is possible to just install the R dependency, makes sure the tool and Galaxy have access to it in the ENV/PATH settings, but that is a custom method.

Also see how to use Bioblend for tool development here:

Thanks, Jen, Galaxy team
