Best practices for loading fastq data into Galaxy
- As of release
fastqdata will have the datatype
fastqsangerauto-detected when that quality score scaling is detected and “autodetect” is used within the Upload tool. Compressed
fastqdata will be converted to uncompressed in the history.
- To preserve
fastqcompression, directly assign the appropriate datatype (eg:
- If the data is close to or over 2 GB in size, be sure to use FTP.
- If the data was already loaded as
fastq.gz, don’t worry! Just test the data for correct format (as needed) and assign the metadata type.
