To download a large file or multiple files from this directory, we recommend 
that you use rsync or ftp rather than downloading the files via our website.

Via rsync:
rsync -avz --progress \
	rsync:// ./

Via FTP:
    user name: anonymous
    password: <your email address>
    go to the directory goldenPath/eboVir3/phastCons160way

To download multiple files from the UNIX command line, use the "mget" command. 
    mget <filename1> <filename2> ...
    - or -
    mget -a (to download all the files in the directory) 
Use the "prompt" command to toggle the interactive mode if you do not want 
to be prompted for each file that you download.

All the files in this directory are freely available for public use.
For data use restrictions regarding the genome assemblies used in this
annotation, see
