This directory contains alignments of the following assemblies:

  - target/reference: Platypus (ornAna1, Mar. 2007, WUSTL version 5.0.1)

  - query: Marmoset (calJac1, June 2007, WUSTL 2.0.2)

Files included in this directory:

  - md5sum.txt: md5sum checksums for the files in this directory

  - ornAna1.calJac1.all.chain.gz: chained blastz alignments. The chain format is
    described in .

  - "net" file that describes rearrangements between 
    the species and the best Marmoset match to any part of the
    Platypus genome.  The net format is described in .

  - chained and netted alignments,
    i.e. the best chains in the Platypus genome, with gaps in the best
    chains filled in by next-best chains where possible.  The axt format is
    described in .

The ornAna1 and calJac1 assemblies were aligned by the blastz alignment
program, which is available from Webb Miller's lab at Penn State
University (  Any ornAna1 sequences larger
than 10,010,000 bases were split into chunks of 10,010,000 bases overlapping
by 10,000 bases for alignment.  A similar process was followed for calJac1,
with chunks of 5,000,000 overlapping by 0.)  Following alignment, the
coordinates of the chunk alignments were corrected by the
blastz-normalizeLav script written by Scott Schwartz of Penn State. 

The blastz scoring matrix (Q parameter) used was:

             A    C    G    T
      A     91  -90  -25 -100
      C    -90  100 -100  -25
      G    -25 -100  100  -90
      T   -100  -25  -90  91

with a gap open penalty of O=400 and a gap extension penalty of E=30.
The minimum score for an alignment to be kept was K=2200 for the first pass
and L=6000 for the second pass, which restricted the search space to the
regions between two alignments found in the first pass.  The minimum
score for alignments to be interpolated between was H=2000.  Other blastz
parameters specifically set for this species pair:

The .lav format blastz output was translated to the .psl format with
lavToPsl, then chained by the axtChain program.

Chained alignments were processed into nets by the chainNet, netSyntenic,
and netClass programs.
Best-chain alignments in axt format were extracted by the netToAxt program.
All programs run after blastz were written by Jim Kent at UCSC.

we recommend you use ftp rather than downloading the files via our website.
To do so, ftp to, then go to the directory
