This directory contains the March 2006 Zv6 assembly of the zebrafish genome 
(UCSC version danRer4) obtained from the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute 
and produced by a collaboration between the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute 
in Cambridge, UK, the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology in 
Tuebingen, Germany, the Netherlands Institute for Developmental Biology 
(Hubrecht Laboratory), Utrecht, The Netherlands and Yi Zhou and Leonard 
Zon from the Children's Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts.

Files included in this directory:

  - chr*.fa.gz: gzip compressed FASTA sequence of each chromosome.
    Repeats (from RepeatMasker and Tandem Repeat Finder) 
    are in lower case while non-repeating sequence is in upper case.
    RepeatMasker March 20 2006 (open-3-1-5) version with RepBase libraries:
    RepBase Update 20060315, RM database version 20060315 with the addition 
    of the zebunc.ref (Zebrafish Unclassified) repeats library from 
    RepBase 11.02.
  - scaffold*.fa.gz: gzip compressed FASTA sequence of individual scaffolds 
    for chrNA_random and chrUn_random. These are repeatmasked as described 

  - md5sum.txt - Checksum file.

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, then go to 
the directory goldenPath/danRer4/chromosomes. To download multiple files, 
use the "mget" command:

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

The Zv6 zebrafish sequence data were produced by the Zebrafish Sequencing 
Group at the Sanger Institute and can be obtained directly from All sequence data 
are made available before scientific publication with the understanding that 
the groups involved in generating the data intend to publish the initial 
large-scale analyses of the dataset. This will include a summary detailing 
the data that have beeen generated and key features of the genome identified 
from genomic assembly and clone mapping/sequencing. Any redistribution of 
the data should carry this notice.
