This directory contains the Oct. 2010 (CGSC 2.1.3/panTro3) assembly of
the chimp genome (panTro3, CGSC 2.1.3 (GCA_000001515.3)), as well as
repeat annotations and GenBank sequences.
This assembly was produced by Chimpanzee Sequencing and Analysis Consortium.

Files included in this directory:
panTro3.2bit - contains the complete chimp/panTro3 genome sequence
in the 2bit file format. Repeats from RepeatMasker and Tandem Repeats
Finder (with period of 12 or less) are shown in lower case; non-repeating
sequence is shown in upper case. The utility program, twoBitToFa (available
from the kent src tree), can be used to extract .fa file(s) from
this file. A pre-compiled version of the command line tool can be
panTro3.agp.gz - Description of how the assembly was generated from
panTro3.fa.gz - "Soft-masked" assembly sequence in one file.
Repeats from RepeatMasker and Tandem Repeats Finder (with period
of 12 or less) are shown in lower case; non-repeating sequence is
shown in upper case.
panTro3.fa.masked.gz - "Hard-masked" assembly sequence in one file.
Repeats are masked by capital Ns; non-repeating sequence is shown in
panTro3.fa.out.gz - RepeatMasker .out file. RepeatMasker was run with the
-s (sensitive) setting. RepeatMasker version: June 30 2010 (open-3-2-9)
RepeatMasker library version: 20090604
panTro3.trf.bed.gz - Tandem Repeats Finder locations, filtered to keep repeats
with period less than or equal to 12, and translated into UCSC's BED
md5sum.txt - checksums of files in this directory
upstream1000.fa.gz - Sequences 1000 bases upstream of annotated
transcription starts of RefSeq genes with annotated 5' UTRs.
This file is updated weekly so it might be slightly out of sync with
the RefSeq data which is updated daily for most assemblies.
upstream2000.fa.gz - Same as upstream1000, but 2000 bases.
upstream5000.fa.gz - Same as upstream1000, but 5000 bases.
panTro3.chrom.sizes - Two-column tab-separated text file containing assembly
sequence names and sizes.
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
[username: anonymous, password: your email address], then cd to the
directory goldenPath/panTro3/bigZips. To download multiple files, use
the "mget" command:
mget <filename1> <filename2> ...
- or -
mget -a (to download all the files in the directory)
Alternate methods to ftp access.
Using an rsync command to download the entire directory:
rsync -avzP rsync://hgdownload.cse.ucsc.edu/goldenPath/panTro3/bigZips/ .
For a single file, e.g. chromFa.tar.gz
Or with wget, all files:
With wget, a single file:
To unpack the *.tar.gz files:
tar xvzf <file>.tar.gz
To uncompress the fa.gz files:
The chimpanzee 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.
