This directory contains a dump of the UCSC genome annotation
database for the Feb. 2004 freeze of the chicken genome
(galGal2, Feb. 2004) from the Genome Sequencing Center at
the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
The annotations were generated by UCSC and collaborators worldwide.
Files included in this directory (updated nightly):
- *.sql files: the MySQL commands used to create the tables.
To see descriptions of the tables underlying Genome Browser annotation
tracks, select the table in the Table Browser:
and click the "describe table schema" button. There is also a "view
table schema" link on the configuration page for each track.
- *.txt.gz files: the database tables in a tab-delimited format
compressed with gzip.
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/database/. To download multiple
files, use the "mget" command:
mget <filename1> <filename2> ...
- or -
mget -a (to download all the files in the directory)
All the tables in this directory are freely usable for any purpose.
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
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.
