This directory contains the Feb. 2004 freeze of the chicken genome
(galGal2, Feb. 2004) produced by the Genome Sequencing Center at 
Washington University in St. Louis.

Files included in this directory:

  - chr*.fa.zip: compressed FASTA sequence of each chromosome.
    Repeats (from RepeatMasker and Tandem Repeat Finder) 
    are in lower case while non-repeating sequence is in upper case.
    RepeatMasker January 2004 version with RepBase libraries:
    RepBase Update 8.4, RM database version 20040225

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, then 
go to the directory goldenPath/galGal2/chromosomes. To download 
multiple files, use the "mget" command:

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

The chicken sequence is made freely available before scientific 
publication with the following understanding: 

1. The data may be freely downloaded, used in analyses, and repackaged 
   in databases. 
2. Users are free to use the data in scientific papers analyzing 
   particular genes and regions if the providers of these data are 
   properly acknowledged. See http://genome.ucsc.edu/goldenPath/credits.html
   for credit information.
3. The centers producing the data reserve the right to publish the initial
   large-scale analyses of the data set, including large-scale identification 
   of regions of evolutionary conservation and large-scale genomic assembly.
   Large-scale refers to regions with size on the order of a chromosome (that 
   is, 30 Mb or more). 
4. Any redistribution of the data should carry this notice.
