Explanation of Galaxy's tool dependency definitions that specify how to source the actual packages that implement the tool’s commands.
Deployment

From the introduction:

  • There are two parts to building a link between Galaxy and command line bioinformatics tools: the tool XML that specifies a mapping between the Galaxy web user interface and the tool command line and tool dependencies that specify how to source the actual packages that implement the tool’s commands. I spent a bit of time today digging into how that second set of components operates as part of my work on SANBI‘s local Galaxy installation.

See the full blog entry for the details.
