This directory contains compressed phastCons scores for multiple
alignments of the following assemblies to the Human Jul. 2003 (hg16)
 - Chimp Nov. 2003 (panTro1)
 - Mouse Feb 2003 (mm3)
 - Rat Jun. 2003 (rn3)
 - Chicken Feb. 2004 (galGal2) 

Each human chromosome has a corresponding data file. When uncompressed, 
the data file contains two columns: a 1-based coordinate and a score 
showing the posterior probability that phastCons's phylogenetic hidden 
Markov model (HMM) is in its most-conserved state at that base position.
