Hello, I would like to request that the rhesus macaque (RheMac8) genome reference index be added as a built-in index in the RNA STAR tool. In the tool it states "If your genome of interest is not listed, contact the Galaxy team". If this is not the correct place to make this kind of request, my apologies.
This genome and most others that are from the last two most current builds per genome hosted by UCSC will be added. Follow here: https://github.com/galaxyproject/galaxy/issues/1470#issuecomment-208444904
But you do not have to wait. Upload the genome from UCSC into your history and use it now with tools as a Custom genome/build.
Thanks, Jen, Galaxy team
