I read about plans to create db key from the data manager tools, but I can't find the relevant tool.


Do i need to make up a name, fetch the genome and count chromosome lengths so I can populate manual_builds txt?

Is there some data manager tool that I cant' find?

Is there a good way to add ensembl genomes like we have for ucsc?

Hi Brad,

have you tried data_manager_fetch_genome_all_fasta?

Yep. But you have to specify a dbkey in the first dropdown, and I can't find e.g. glycine max in the big list.

Did I miss something about how this works?

There is a better Data Manager available in the Test ToolShed that will add a dbkey, .len file, and fasta genome for use by tools. I've been meaning to move it over to the main toolshed after an enhancement to allow it it deal with downloading from UCSC using their new file naming structure for the most recent human genome release. But you can have a look at it here for now if you like:

Thanks for the responses!

I just tried the new data manager from the test toolshed...

I think it's a bit buggy (or maybe I've done something wrong... )

Here's the traceback from the failed tool execution
