Adding a custom database/build (dbkey)

Galaxy may have several reference genomes built-in, but you can also create your own.
  • Navigate to the History that contains your fasta for the reference genome
  • Standarize the fasta format
  • In the top menu bar, go to User -> Preferences -> Manage Custom Builds
  • Create a unique Name for your reference build
  • Create a unique Database (dbkey) for your reference build
  • Under Definition, select the option FASTA-file from history
  • Under FASTA-file, select your fasta file
  • Click the Save button
