This file is from:

This directory contains conservation scoring by phyloP (phylogenetic p-values)
from the PHAST package ( for multiple
alignments of 6 vertebrate genomes to the human genome.

Files in this directory:

    hg38.phyloP7way.mod - phyloP tree model with branch lengths for
                            all 7 species - scores in bigWig format
    hg38.phyloP7way.wigFix.gz - scores in fixed step wiggle format

    go to the directory goldenPath/hg38/phyloP7way

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.
