1. Questions About GenomeSpace
1.1 Is there a file storage quota?
At this time, the GenomeSpace team has not set a quota. This decision will be revisited periodically.
1.2 I am already logged in via GenomeSpace/Cytoscape/Genomica/IGV. Why do I have to log in again to go to Galaxy/GenePattern/UCSC/InSilico DB (and vice versa)?
The web applications have a single sign-on and the desktop applications have a single sign-on, but the two single sign-on setups cannot communicate, and are, for now, separate. Thus, GenomeSpace technically has Dual Sign-on instead of Single Sign-on.
1.3 I already have an account on a public Galaxy or GenePattern server. Can I use this account with GenomeSpace?
GenomeSpace currently launches different Galaxy and GenePattern servers than the publicly available ones, and therefore existing account information is not available on these servers. We expect that the production Galaxy and GenePattern servers will be accessible from GenomeSpace in the next few months.
1.4 What browsers work with GenomeSpace?
GenomeSpace is developed and tested on:
Internet Explorer and Safari 5.0.x do not work with GenomeSpace.
