  Sequence and Annotation Downloads
 

This page contains links to sequence and annotation data downloads for the genome assemblies featured in the UCSC Genome Browser. Table downloads are also available via the Genome Browser FTP server. For quick access to the most recent assembly of each genome, see the current genomes directory. This directory may be useful to individuals with automated scripts that must always reference the most recent assembly.

To view the current descriptions and formats of the tables in the annotation database, use the "describe table schema" button in the Table Browser. The Description of the annotation database page (no longer maintained) also provides descriptions of selected tables in the database.

All tables in the Genome Browser are freely usable for any purpose except as indicated in the README.txt files in the download directories. To view restrictions specific to a particular data set, click on the corresponding download link and review the README text. These data were contributed by many researchers, as listed on the Genome Browser credits page. Please acknowledge the contributor(s) of the data you use.
