The genomes hg19 and hg38 are sourced from UCSC. Full release details (and data) are included here:

The genome hg19 Canonical is the same as hg19 except that it only includes the autosomes, the sex chromosomes, and the mitochondrial genome. Haplotype chromosomes and unknown/unmapped contigs are excluded.

For the HIV-1 genome, upload it to Galaxy and use it as a custom genome/build.

Hope this helps! Jen, Galaxy team

Did you see the help for Custom genomes? It explains the expected format and how to reformat as needed plus has examples for setting tool forms to use the custom genome fasta dataset as a mapping target with tools.

Definitely use the NormalizeFasta tool on data from NCBI (the options are explained in the same custom genome FAQ). The identifiers are formatted like this by default:

>AF033819.3 HIV-1, complete genome

But they need to be reformatted to be like this for use in Galaxy:


The genome you linked is the primary HIV-1 genome. Use the "Send to" menu at NCBI to export the fasta data locally to your computer, then upload it to Galaxy.

The NCBI "Send to" options should be set like this:

Uploading to Galaxy is explained here: Loading Data
