This directory contains a dump of the UCSC genome annotation database for
the Feb. 2006 assembly of the stickleback genome (gasAcu1, Broad Institute 
version 1.0).
The annotations were generated by UCSC and collaborators worldwide.

This assembly was produced by the Broad Institute at MIT and Harvard.
For more information on the stickleback 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, then go to 
the directory goldenPath/gasAcu1/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 files and tables in this directory are freely usable for any purpose.

The stickleback 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
2. Users are free to use the data in scientific papers analyzing particular 
genes and regions if the providers of these data (The Broad Institute) are 
properly acknowledged. 
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.
