This directory contains a dump of the UCSC genome annotation database for
the May 2006 assembly of the chicken genome (galGal3, Chicken Genome
Sequencing Consortium May 2006 release)
The annotations were generated by UCSC and collaborators worldwide.
This assembly was produced by the Genome Sequencing Center at the
Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
For more information on the chicken genome, see the project website:
Files included in this directory (updated nightly):
- *.sql files: the MySQL commands used to create the tables
- *.txt.gz files: the database tables in a tab-delimited format
compressed with gzip.
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.
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/galGal3/database/. 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 to the community by the
Genome Sequencing Center, Washington University School of Medicine, with
the following understanding:
1. The data may be freely downloaded, used in analyses, and repackaged in
2. Users are free to use the data in scientific papers analyzing these data
if the providers of these data are properly cited:
International Chicken Genome Sequencing Consortium.
Sequence and comparative analysis of the chicken genome provide unique
perspectives on vertebrate evolution.
