This directory contains alignments of
    C. elegans (ce11, Feb. 2013 (WBcel235/ce11),
    C. elegans Sequencing Consortium WBcel235) to itself.

Files included in this directory:

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

  - ce11.ce11.all.chain.gz: chained blastz alignments. The chain format is
    described in http://genome.ucsc.edu/goldenPath/help/chain.html .

The ce11 assembly was aligned to itself 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 sequences larger
than 20,010,000 bases were split into chunks of 20,010,000 bases
overlapping by 10,000 bases for alignment.  Following alignment, the
coordinates of the chunk alignments were corrected by the
blastz-normalizeLav script written by Scott Schwartz of Penn State. 
All repetitive sequences identified by RepeatMasker were removed from the
assembly before alignment using the fasta-subseq and strip_rpts programs
from Penn State.  The abbreviated genome was aligned with blastz, and the
transposons were then added back in (i.e. the alignment coordinates were
adjusted) using the restore_rpts program from 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=254

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

Chain minimum score: 10000, and linearGap matrix of (medium):

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/ce11/vsSelf/. To download multiple files, use the "mget"
command:

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