The root issue has to do with a current problem with certain Get Data tools. Details here: https://github.com/galaxyproject/galaxy/issues/6334 and https://github.com/galaxyproject/galaxy/issues/6472
To workaround the problem until fixed, please reassign the datatype to be "fastqsanger.gz" for your fastq inputs. The data is compressed but is not being labeled that way in the metadata -- we'll be fixing that. Please follow the tickets above for updates.
How to change metadata is in the Galaxy FAQs: https://galaxyproject.org/support/
- How do I find, adjust, and/or correct metadata? https://galaxyproject.org/support/metadata/
- Or, if your accession is at NCBI, the tool NCBI SRA Tools > Download and Extract Reads in FASTA/Q format from NCBI SRA can be used instead. That tool sets the metadata correctly depending on the output datatype selected on the form.
Thanks! Jen, Galaxy team
