This directory contains a dump of the UCSC genome annotation
database for the assembly of the Xenopus tropicalis genome
from the US DOE Joint Genome Institute (JGI) (xenTro2, Aug. 2005,
Files included in this directory (updated nightly):
- *.sql files: the MySQL commands used to create the tables.
To see descriptions of the tables underlying Genome Browser annotation
tracks, select the table in the Table Browser:
and click the "describe table schema" button. There is also a "view
table schema" link on the configuration page for each track.
- *.txt.gz files: the database tables in a tab-delimited format
compressed with gzip.
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/xenTro2/database/. To download multiple files,
use the "mget" command:
mget <filename1> <filename2> ...
- or -
mget -a (to download all the files in the directory)
Preliminary drafts of the X. tropicalis sequence are made freely available
before scientific publication by the JGI and the X. tropicalis Genome
Consortium, 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 provider of this data
(DOE Joint Genome Institute) is properly acknowledged.
3. Additional shotgun sequencing is ongoing, and future assembly
releases will be made in a timely fashion. We expect to publish an
initial analysis of a high quality draft X. tropicalis genome sequence
in 2005 (with submission targeted for the spring of 2005) which will
include descriptions of the large scale organization of the frog
genome as well as genome-scale comparisons of the frog sequence and
gene set with those of other animals. Others who would like to
coordinate other genome-wide analysis with this work should contact
Paul Richardson (firstname.lastname@example.org), JGI. We welcome a coordinated
approach to describing this community resource.
4. Any redistribution of the data should carry this notice.
