TopHat 2.1.1 and Cufflinks appear to work properly. After the tool cufflinks, the next tool in my pipeline is Cuffmerge.

In running Cuffmerge, I use the reference for human genome: hg19.fasta. I downloaded the GRCh37/hg19 full data set as a twoBit file from then I used the tool twoBitToFa to convert the twobit file into a fasta file (hg19.fasta).

“Use Sequence Data” answer: Yes “Choose the source for the reference list” answer: History “Using reference file” answer: hg19.fasta (from above)

When I execute, I get a red highlight saying: “the selected case is unavailable/invalid” and Galaxy stops.

Any ideas on the cause of this?

I haven't seen this error before but it might be related your fasta file content. This is how to format a custom reference genome:

It would be best to use the same reference genome that was used with Tophat for alignment with the downstream tool Cuffmerge. It can be a natively indexed genome or one in fasta format from the history. This also helps avoid other problems that can come up with chromosome/build mismatch problems.

Hope that helps, Jen, Galaxy team
