Funannotate fails, maybe trying to create a file

Hi everyone,

I am getting an error in Funannotate but the same options work in a different galaxy server.

This is the error message I get:

[Jun 18 12:07 PM]: Genome loaded: 24,079 scaffolds; 50,288,274 bp; 1.57% repeats masked

This seems to be same issue: Can't identify the error in Funannotate

The same genomic data and options work perfectly in a different server, although the funannotate databases seem different. The one that works in the other server is labelled ‘2023-05-10-062530’, and the available ones here are different.

Hi @BShelb

This was using the rerun button, correct?

Instead, try selecting the available annotation datasets that the server hosts. Each might host slightly different versions. For most uses, which you use will probably not make a huge difference.

But if you are trying to reproduce an earlier analysis, sticking with the same server might be a good idea so that you are using the same exact index and not introducing another change outside of the actual input data or parameters.

Hope this helps, but you can explain more if I am misunderstanding. The two server URLs would be one place to start…


Thanks for your reply. This bug has been fixed now.
