This directory contains the Feb. 2004 freeze of the Tetraodon 
nigroviridis version 7 (V7) genome assembly (tetNig1) provided by 
Genoscope ( This assembly is the result 
of a collaboration between Genoscope and the Broad Institute of MIT 
and Harvard. 

Files included in this directory:

  - chr* 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 January 2004 version with RepBase libraries:
    RepBase Update 8.4, RM database version 20040225

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/tetNig1/chromosomes/. To download multiple 
files, use the "mget" command:

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

All the files in this directory are freely usable for any purpose. 

The Tetraodon sequence has been freely provided by Genoscope before 
publication for use in the UCSC Genome Browser with the following 

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, provided that the Genoscope is properly acknowledged.
3. Genoscope reserves 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 Tetraodon chromosome (that 
   is, 5 Mb or more).
4. Any redistribution of the data should carry this notice.
