I got a local instance of galaxy on my computer, and wanted to run a differential expression analysis for some samples of human RNA-seq data. I’ve managed to download the fastq reads for the samples and I’ve downloaded and indexed the human genome using HISAT2 index builder. But when I tried to align the reads from just one of the six files, it wasn’t able to align them in almost 60 hours of running. So I decided that I’d need to do this on the cloud. However, I don’t want to have to reinstall the tools, and re-download all the files and re-index the genome. I was wondering if there was any way to take whatever I have on my computer, and put it onto the cloud as is, so that I can pick up where I left off.
