1This folder holds cron jobs that support galaxy. 2 3updateucsc.sh is a shell script to facilitate the updates from UCSC. 4Galaxy stores several files locally to speed up operations that depend 5on information from UCSC. These files can all be found in the 6static/ucsc folder. 7 8Before adding updateucsc.sh to the crontab, it is important to note 9two things. First, updateucsc.sh must be edited to point towards the 10root galaxy directory. At the top of the file there is a variable 11"GALAXY" that should be edited. Second, the updates come from UCSC 12via their table browsers. While the tendency is typically to run cron 13jobs late at night, UCSC, like most, tend to take down their servers 14at odd hours for maintenance. The update scripts for UCSC are not CPU 15intensive, and should be scheduled during normal hours.
