[galaxy-user] Yeast Genome Assembly

We will add the new yeast genome from Feb 2011 to our working list of
genomes to add. (r64 dated Feb-3-2011 at SGD, dated April 2011 at NCBI).
This confirmed with SGD directly to be a more current version that the
two currently at Galaxy. The S288C_reference_genome_r64.tar.gz download
Meanwhile, the data can be loaded and added to your history and used
from there as a reference genome with most tools.
Best wishes for your project!
