This directory contains the Mar. 2007 assembly of the tetraodon genome
(tetNig2, Genoscope Tetraodon v8.0 (NCBI project 12350, CAAE01000000)),
as well as repeat annotations and GenBank sequences.

This assembly was produced by Genoscope - Centre National de Séquençage
and the Broad Institute.

For more information on the tetraodon genome, see the project website:

Files included in this directory:

tetNig2.2bit - contains the complete tetraodon/tetNig2 genome sequence
    in the 2bit file format.  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:
    See also:

chromAgp.tar.gz - Description of how the assembly was generated from
    fragments, unpacking to one file per chromosome.

chromFa.tar.gz - The assembly sequence in one file per chromosome.
    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.

chromFaMasked.tar.gz - The assembly sequence in one file per chromosome.
    Repeats are masked by capital Ns; non-repeating sequence is shown in
    upper case.

chromOut.tar.gz - RepeatMasker .out files (one file per chromosome).
    RepeatMasker was run with the -s (sensitive) setting.
    Repeat masker version: June 4 2009 (open-3-2-8)
    Library release 20090604

chromTrf.tar.gz - Tandem Repeats Finder locations, filtered to keep repeats
    with period less than or equal to 12, and translated into UCSC's BED 5+
    format (one file per chromosome).

md5sum.txt - checksums of files in this directory

mrna.fa.gz - Tetraodon 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.

tetNig2.chrom.sizes - Two-column tab-separated text file containing assembly
    sequence names and sizes.

tetNig2.chromAlias.txt - sequence name alias file, one line
    for each sequence name.  First column is sequence name followed by
    tab separated alias names.

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/tetNig2/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

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.
