This directory contains the assembled sequence for the November 2004
update of the rat genome (rn4, Nov. 2004, version 3.4) in separate files
for each chromosome in a gzip-compressed 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 http://www.hgsc.bcm.tmc.edu/.
Files included in this directory:
- chr*.fa.gz: 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 hgdownload.cse.ucsc.edu, then
go to the directory goldenPath/rn4/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
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 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
http://www.wellcome.ac.uk/en/1/awtpubrepdat.html) and the resulting
NHGRI policy statement
5. Any redistribution of the data should carry this notice.
