This directory contains alignments of the following assemblies:

  - target/reference: Cow (bosTau7, Oct. 2011 (Baylor Btau_4.6.1/bosTau7), Btau_4.6.1 (NCBI project 12555, accession GCA_000003205.4))

  - query: White rhinoceros (cerSim1, May 2012 (CerSimSim1.0/cerSim1), Broad Institute)

Files included in this directory:

  - md5sum.txt: md5sum checksums for the files in this directory

  - bosTau7.cerSim1.all.chain.gz: chained blastz alignments. The chain format is
    described in http://genome.ucsc.edu/goldenPath/help/chain.html .

  - bosTau7.cerSim1.net.gz: "net" file that describes rearrangements between 
    the species and the best White rhinoceros match to any part of the
    Cow genome.  The net format is described in
    http://genome.ucsc.edu/goldenPath/help/net.html .

  - bosTau7.cerSim1.net.axt.gz: chained and netted alignments,
    i.e. the best chains in the Cow genome, with gaps in the best
    chains filled in by next-best chains where possible.  The axt format is
    described in http://genome.ucsc.edu/goldenPath/help/axt.html .

The bosTau7 and cerSim1 assemblies were aligned by the blastz alignment
program, which is available from Webb Miller's lab at Penn State
University (http://www.bx.psu.edu/miller_lab/).  Any bosTau7 sequences larger
than 20,010,000 bases were split into chunks of 20,010,000 bases overlapping
by 10,000 bases for alignment.  A similar process was followed for cerSim1,
with chunks of 20,000,000 overlapping by 0.  Following alignment, the
coordinates of the chunk alignments were corrected by the
blastz-normalizeLav script written by Scott Schwartz of Penn State. 

The blastz scoring matrix (Q parameter) used was the default matrix:

           A    C    G    T
      A   91 -114  -31 -123
      C -114  100 -125  -31
      G  -31 -125  100 -114
      T -123  -31 -114   91

with a gap open penalty of O=400 and a gap extension penalty of E=30.
The minimum score for an alignment to be kept was K=3000 for the first pass
and L=3000 for the second pass, which restricted the search space to the
regions between two alignments found in the first pass.  The minimum
score for alignments to be interpolated between was H=2000.  Other blastz
parameters specifically set for this species pair:
    M=50

The .lav format blastz output was translated to the .psl format with
lavToPsl, then chained by the axtChain program.

Chain minimum score: 3000, and linearGap matrix of (medium):

Chained alignments were processed into nets by the chainNet, netSyntenic,
and netClass programs.
Best-chain alignments in axt format were extracted by the netToAxt program.
All programs run after blastz were written by Jim Kent at UCSC.

If you plan to download a large file or multiple files from this directory,
we recommend you use ftp rather than downloading the files via our website.
To do so, ftp to hgdownload.cse.ucsc.edu, then go to the directory
goldenPath/bosTau7/vsCerSim1/. To download multiple files, use the "mget"
command:

    mget <filename1> <filename2> ...
    - or -
    mget -a (to download all files in the current directory)
