This directory contains the Dec. 2011 (v3.0.1/chrPic1) assembly of the
painted turtle genome
(chrPic1, International Painted Turtle Genome Sequencing Consortium (GCA_000241765.1)),
as well as repeat annotations and GenBank sequences.

For more information about this assembly, please note the NCBI resources:

Files included in this directory:

chrPic1.2bit - contains the complete painted turtle/chrPic1 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
    found at:

chrPic1.agp.gz - Description of how the assembly was generated from

chrPic1.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.

chrPic1.fa.masked.gz - "Hard-masked" assembly sequence in one file.
    Repeats are masked by capital Ns; non-repeating sequence is shown in
    upper case.

chrPic1.fa.out.gz - RepeatMasker .out file.  RepeatMasker was run with the
    -s (sensitive) setting.  Repeat Masker version: April 26 2011 (open-3-3-0)
    database version: RELEASE 20110920

chrPic1.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

mrna.fa.gz - Painted turtle mRNA from GenBank. This sequence data is updated
    once a week via automatic GenBank updates.

xenoMrna.fa.gz - GenBank mRNAs from species other than that of 
    the genome. This sequence data is updated once a week via automatic 
    GenBank updates.

chrPic1.chrom.sizes - Two-column tab-separated text file containing assembly
    sequence names and sizes.

chrPic1.gc5Base.wigVarStep.gz - ascii data wiggle variable step values used
                           - to construct the GC Percent track
chrPic1.gc5Base.wig.gz - wiggle database table for the GC Percent track
                    - this is an older standard alternative to the current
                    - bigWig format of the track, sometimes usefull for analysis
chrPic1.gc5Base.wib    - binary data to correspond with the gc5Base.wig file
    see also:
         for a discussion of how to use the wig.gz and .wib files for
         interaction with the GC percent data values

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
[username: anonymous, password: your email address], then cd to the
directory goldenPath/chrPic1/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:// .
For a single file, e.g. chromFa.tar.gz
    rsync -avzP 
        rsync:// .

Or with wget, all files:
    wget --timestamping 
With wget, a single file:
    wget --timestamping 
        -O chromFa.tar.gz

To unpack the *.tar.gz files:
    tar xvzf <file>.tar.gz
To uncompress the fa.gz files:
    gunzip <file>.fa.gz

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.
