This directory contains the May 2007 assembly of the C. remanei genome
(UCSC version caeRem3, WUSTL School of Medicine GSC version 15.0.1) in 
one gzip-compressed FASTA file per chromosome.

This assembly was produced by the Genome Sequencing Center at
the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis (WUSTL).
For more information on the C. remanei genome, see the project website:

Files included in this directory:

  - chrUn.fa.gz: compressed FASTA sequence of each chromosome.
    Repeats from WindowMasker and Tandem Repeats Finder (with period
    of 12 or less) are shown in lower case; non-repeating sequence is
    shown in upper case.

  - md5sum.txt - the md5sum for the above file

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, then 
go to the directory goldenPath/caeRem3/chromosomes. 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. chrUn.fa.gz
    rsync -avzP 
        rsync:// .
Or with wget, all files:
    wget --timestamping 
With wget, a single file:
    wget --timestamping 
        -O chrUn.fa.gz
To uncompress the fa.gz files:
    gunzip chrUn.fa.gz

The C. remanei sequence is made freely available to the community by the
Genome Sequencing Center at the WUSTL School of Medicine. Please see the
WUSTL data use policy at for data use
restrictions and citation information.
