This directory contains the assembled sequence for the June 2003 
update of the rat genome (rn3, Jun. 2003) in separate files for 
each chromosome in a zipped Fasta format. This assembly was 
provided by the Rat Genome Sequencing Consortium. It was produced 
at the Baylor College of Medicine. For more information on the rat 
genome, see the Rat Genome Project website for the Baylor College of 
Medicine Human Genome Sequencing Center at 

Files included in this directory:

  - chr* compressed FASTA sequence of each chromosome.
    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.

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, then 
go to the directory goldenPath/rnJun2003/chromosomes. To download 
multiple files, use the "mget" command:

    mget <filename1> <filename2> ...
    - or -
    mget -a (to download all the files in the directory)

These data are  made available before scientific publication with the
following understanding:
1. The data may be freely downloaded, used in analyses, and repackaged
   in databases.
2. Users are free to use the data in scientific papers analyzing
   particular genes and regions if the providers of this data (the Rat
   Genome Sequencing Consortium) are properly acknowledged.
3. The Centers producing the data reserve the right to publish the
   initial large-scale analyses of the dataset, 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. This is in accordance with, and with the understandings in the Fort
   Lauderdale meeting discussing Community Resource Projects (see and the resulting
   NHGRI policy statement
5. Any redistribution of the data should carry this notice.
