I'm very new with Galaxy. I have just started using it. I'm sending fastq files from http://www.ebi.ac.uk/ena/data/ to Galaxy but I'm encountering some questions:
When I send the files to galaxy, the sizes of them, shown on Galaxy, differ substantially from each other. I mean, the fastq files come from 4 people and logically they all must have similar sizes. But for the first person it is only 396 MB and for the second person it is 3.9 GB... Is it possible that the files aren't properly sent to Galaxy? Galaxy's history is green for all files which should definitely mean that the files are uploaded properly in Galaxy... So what could be the problem?
I don't know how to use Galaxy on Cloud. Do you think usegalaxy.org could fulfill my needs of converting fastq files to bam files and then obtaining read counts (RNA-seq study)? I have 16 samples in total which are from 16 total RNA-seq data.
