This directory contains the May 2008 assembly of the C. elegans genome
(UCSC version ce6, WUSTL School of Medicine GSC and Sanger Institute 
version WS190), as well as repeat annotations and GenBank sequences.

This assembly was produced by the Genome Sequencing Center at the 
Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL) School of Medicine and
the Sanger Institute. For more information on the 
C. elegans genome, see the WUSTL project website at
http://genome.wustl.edu/genome.cgi?GENOME=Caenorhabditis+elegans. 
The sequence data may also be downloaded from:
ftp://ftp.sanger.ac.uk/pub/wormbase/WS190/CHROMOSOMES/.

Files included in this directory:

ce6.2bit - contains the complete C. elegans/ce6 genome sequence
    in the 2bit file format.  Repeats from RepeatMasker and Tandem Repeats
    Finder (with period of 12 or less) are shown in lower case; non-repeating
    sequence is shown in upper case.  The utility program, twoBitToFa (available
    from the kent src tree), can be used to extract .fa file(s) from
    this file.  A pre-compiled version of the command line tool can be
    found at:
        http://hgdownload.cse.ucsc.edu/admin/exe/linux.x86_64/

chromAgp.tar.gz - Description of how the assembly was generated from
    fragments, unpacking to one file per chromosome.

chromFa.tar.gz - The assembly sequence in one file per chromosome.
    Repeats from RepeatMasker and Tandem Repeats Finder (with period
    of 12 or less) are shown in lower case; non-repeating sequence is
    shown in upper case.

chromFaMasked.tar.gz - The assembly sequence in one file per chromosome.
    Repeats are masked by capital Ns; non-repeating sequence is shown in
    upper case.

chromOut.tar.gz - RepeatMasker .out files (one file per chromosome).
    RepeatMasker was run with the -s (sensitive) setting.
     RepeatMasker version: 2008-01-12
    with RepBase libraries: RepBase Update 20071204.

chromTrf.tar.gz - Tandem Repeats Finder locations, filtered to keep repeats
    with period less than or equal to 12, and translated into UCSC's BED
    format (one file per chromosome).

est.fa.gz - C. elegans ESTs in GenBank. This sequence data is updated once a
    week via automatic GenBank updates.

md5sum.txt - checksums of files in this directory

mrna.fa.gz - C. elegans mRNA from GenBank. This sequence data is updated
    once a week via automatic GenBank updates.

refMrna.fa.gz - RefSeq mRNA from the same species as the genome.
    This sequence data is updated once a week via automatic GenBank
    updates.

upstream1000.fa.gz - Sequences 1000 bases upstream of annotated
    transcription starts for RefSeq genes with annotated 5' UTRs.  
    This file is updated weekly so it could be slightly out      
    of sync with the RefSeq data which is updated daily for most
    assemblies.

upstream2000.fa.gz - Same as upstream1000, but 2000 bases.

upstream5000.fa.gz - Same as upstream1000, but 5000 bases.

sangerGene.upstream1000.fa.gz - Sequences 1000 bases upstream of annotated
    transcription start of WormBase genes.  This includes only cases
    where the transcription start is annotated separately from the
    coding region start.  (these are from the sangerGene table)

sangerGene.upstream2000.fa.gz - Same as sangerGene.upstream1000, but 2000 bases.

sangerGene.upstream5000.fa.gz - Same as sangerGene.upstream1000, but 5000 bases.

xenoMrna.fa.gz - GenBank mRNAs from species other than that of 
    the genome. This sequence data is updated once a week via automatic 
    GenBank updates.

ce6.chrom.sizes - Two-column tab-separated text file containing assembly
    sequence names and sizes.

------------------------------------------------------------------
If you plan to download a large file or multiple files from this
directory, we recommend that you use ftp rather than downloading the
files via our website. To do so, ftp to hgdownload.cse.ucsc.edu
[username: anonymous, password: your email address], then cd to the
directory goldenPath/ce6/bigZips. To download multiple files, use
the "mget" command:

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

Alternate methods to ftp access.

Using an rsync command to download the entire directory:
    rsync -avzP rsync://hgdownload.cse.ucsc.edu/goldenPath/ce6/bigZips/ .
For a single file, e.g. chromFa.tar.gz
    rsync -avzP 
        rsync://hgdownload.cse.ucsc.edu/goldenPath/ce6/bigZips/chromFa.tar.gz .

Or with wget, all files:
    wget --timestamping 
        'ftp://hgdownload.cse.ucsc.edu/goldenPath/ce6/bigZips/*'
With wget, a single file:
    wget --timestamping 
        'ftp://hgdownload.cse.ucsc.edu/goldenPath/ce6/bigZips/chromFa.tar.gz' 
        -O chromFa.tar.gz

To unpack the *.tar.gz files:
    tar xvzf <file>.tar.gz
To uncompress the fa.gz files:
    gunzip <file>.fa.gz
