To Whom It May Concern, I am curious if there is a tool within Galaxy to generate a set of random intervals from a particular genome similar to the "Random Intervals" tool within the ENCODE tools? I am using the "Aggregate datapoints" tool to get phastCons conservation scores for peaks from ChIP-Seq data. I would like to compare these scores to a random expectation so would like to be able to use a Random Intervals-like tool to generate a set of random positions to compare to the experimental set.

Lynch, Associate Research Scientist Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology & Yale Systems Biology Institute Yale University "There is a grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that whilst this planet has gone on cycling according to the fixed laws of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved." -C. Darwin, 1859
