This directory contains the Oct. 2010 (WS220/ce10) assembly of the
C. elegans genome (ce10, Washington University School of Medicine
GSC and Sanger Institute WS220) in one gzip-compressed FASTA
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.    RepeatMasker version:
    #   June 30 2010 (open-3-2-9) version of RepeatMasker
    #   CC   RELEASE 20090604;

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

Files included in this directory:

  - chr*.fa.gz: compressed FASTA sequence of each chromosome.

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/ce10/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. chrM.fa.gz
    rsync -avzP 
        rsync:// .
Or with wget, all files:
    wget --timestamping 
With wget, a single file:
    wget --timestamping 
        -O chrM.fa.gz
To uncompress the fa.gz files:
    gunzip <file>.fa.gz

The C. elegans 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.
