Data files can be directly uploaded into Galaxy / Alveo from your computer. They are then usable in the same way as data files imported from the Alveo Collections.
The data you upload will only be available to you on Galaxy / Alveo, not via any Alveo feature. Alveo is a tool for discovering data in its pre-loaded Collections. There is currently no feature provided to upload data to Alveo.
