I am trying to align my hits with a GTF file that I upload from Ensembl, however it is not being recognized. Am I missing something? Once I select the option to align to a annoyed genome, the little icon doesn't work and my file is not recognized.

Unless you are using a custom reference genome that aligns with this Ensembl reference annotation, you will likely run into a reference genome mismatch problems. There are methods to alter the genome chromosome identifiers for certain genomes that are identical between UCSC/Alternate source and Ensembl, but not in all cases.

A bit more about reference data and why this is important:

And help with RNA-seq and Custom reference genomes:

All of that said, if you still wish to use this dataset, the problem is most likely format. The proper datatype aka "format" must be assigned and in many tools, the correct reference genome aka "database". Double check these setting and adjust as needed.

Take care, Jen, Galaxy team
