This directory contains the April 2005 Spur_0.5 release of the
S. purpuratus genome (strPur1) obtained from the Baylor College of
Medicine Human Genome Sequencing Center.
Files included in this directory:
strPur1.2bit - contains the complete S. purpuratus/strPur1 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
allAgp.tar.gz - Description of how the assembly was generated from
allFa.tar.gz- Sequences downloaded from Baylor 19 April 2005.
allFaMasked.tar.gz - The assembly sequence with repeats
masked by capital Ns; non-repeating sequence is shown in upper case.
allOut.tar.gz - RepeatMasker .out file for chromosomes. These were created
by RepeatMasker at the -s sensitive setting.
allTrf.tar.gz - Tandem Repeats Finder locations, filtered to keep repeats
with period less than or equal to 12, and translated into one
.bed file per chromosomes.
md5sum.txt - Checksum file.
mrna.fa.gz - S. purpuratus mRNA from GenBank. This sequence data is updated
once a week via automatic GenBank updates.
refMrna.fa.gz - RefSeq mRNA from the same species as the genome.
This sequence data is updated once a week via automatic GenBank
xenoMrna.fa.gz - GenBank mRNAs from species other than that of
the genome. This sequence data is updated once a week via automatic
strPur1.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 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/strPur1/bigZips. To download multiple files,
use the "mget" command:
mget <filename1> <filename2> ...
- or -
mget -a (to download all the files in the directory)
