I would like to know whether I can post my supplementary data for an
article in the galaxy server.
I have .docx files and .xlsx files. I am planning to upload these data
in a folder and share the link at first and later publish it. When I
tried uploading xlsx file, it is getting automatically converted to
Please let me know if it is possible provide the supplementary
information through galaxy that includes doc and excel sheets..
Thank you so much for your help
Currently .doc and .xlsx file formats are not supported on Pages
For .doc text and .xlsx graphic, you can copy/export as text and
format using the tools in Pages or upload it as a text dataset and
it in, or for graphics export the image and include it that way in the
Page (a side effect of this is that items like graphs will be more
immediately visible to your readers).
And for .xlsx data, you might consider exporting and making that
accessible in standard tabular (or interval, bed, etc.) format as a
dataset instead, and linking that to the Page. This would permit your
readers to work with the raw or computed data directly. There are also
various compute tools, including custom (look under "Text
Manipulation"), that could be created to make algorithms you set up in
excel available to your readers directly as reusable tools in Galaxy
(that could then be included in workflows, etc. to reproduce the
methods). Galaxy also has graphing tools, which would accept datasets
inputs in a similar way that excel would, but these you have perhaps
We realize that this can mean reorganizing data, potentially a
significant portion, and it is likely not appropriate for every case -
but I wanted to make known the current options. There is in general
usually a way to do most data manipulation functions within Galaxy -
finding the right combination of tools is the key. But, the
appropriateness and value long-term of converting can vary of course.
Should you need help with a specific case, please let us know and we
We think Pages are a great resource for communications, and we want to
make it as easy as possible for folks to use them for publications.
Examples can be found in the Published Pages section, with the "Using
Galaxy" supplemental, protocol 2, demonstrating how to quickly convert
even a seemingly foreign data file format into an interval format
suitable for use with many tools.
Hopefully this offers some useful alternatives!
