Is it possible to load bigwig file to UCSC genome browser without having a http, ftp site?
I just want to upload my data from my computer and view it. is this not possible?
It's not possible but you can use a free site like dropbox.com to upload your bibwig file.
See "Hosting Custom Tracks for the UCSC Genome Browser on Dropbox" http://bergmanlab.smith.man.ac.uk/?p=1989
Thanks, is this also true for wig files? For the wig files it keeps giving me the memory error, when i try to upload it from the local drive. Can i ask for more memory for example?
AFAIK you need to convert from wig to bigwig.
thank you, that is great
Hello, I'm trying to upload a bigwig file into UCSC but I always get the message
Error Unrecognized format line 1 of https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/91564809/test.bigwig: (note: chrom names are case sensitive)
I have the format indicated at the post from Bergman lab (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/91564809/test.bigwig)
Thanks in advance!
