I download the GFT file from UCSC and it works in GenomeBrowse 2.0.1. When GenomeBrowse is updated to version 2.0.2, it doesn't work. I cannot find my GTF files in Add Data Sources. Is there any bugs in version 2.0.2?

Thank you very much.

Hey An Hsu,

We don't allow plotting GTF files directly, but you should be able to convert them.

We decided not to display them in the Data Source Libraries view of plottable files in 2.0.2 since they are not plottable (that much has changed since 2.0.1)

But if you click on 'Convert', you should be able to Add your .gtf or .gtf.gz file and convert them into gene sources that you can use for plotting.

See our manual about converting GTF files.

Thanks, Gabe
