SBOL format support

Hello all,

I am currently developing synthetic biology tools for Galaxy. We try to use standards of the field including SBML and SBOL (https://sbolstandard.org/). The former is supported by Galaxy but I could not find the latter. Is there a roadmap to include SBOL? It simply is an XML, and we are currently defining input/output of the tools to take XML. However this is not ideal.

Thank you!

Hi @Melclic1,

Galaxy filetypes are defined in this file: https://github.com/galaxyproject/galaxy/blob/dev/lib/galaxy/config/sample/datatypes_conf.xml.sample#L748

You can create a pull request on GitHub to include the SBOL filetype. Here is a link to the documentation: https://docs.galaxyproject.org/en/latest/dev/data_types.html

Hope this helps, feel free to ask any further questions.

Simon
