Dear users, I am only recently beginning to discover Galaxy, so please bear with me... I am trying to convert a bed to bigbed file, but the job remains 'grey', it does not start. I repeated the same conversion with the UCSC sample file ( , but it still does not work. I simply uploaded the file directly from the link and then used the bed-to-bigbed conversion tool. So either I am doing something wrong or could there be an issue with this conversion on the server? Thanks for your insights, Gijs

Hi Gijs, We only have one node on our main instasnce to do these bigBed and bigWig conversions since they take so much memory, so it may be queued for a while. Thanks, K

Hi Kanwei, thanks for your reply. I will leave them in the queue. I also did several bigwig conversions and these were executed directly, so I did not think this was an issue. I'll wait and see, Gijs

FYI: The bedToBigBed converter is one of the lower memory usage big* converters, with a longer running time: --Hiram
