This directory contains compressed phastCons scores for multiple alignments
of 5 mammal genomes to the cat genome. Assemblies used in these alignments:

  - Cat             Felis catus             Dec 2008 felCat4  reference
  - Dog             Canis lupus familiaris  May 2005 canFam2  chain net
  - Panda           Ailuropoda melanoleuca  Dec 2009 ailMel1  recip best
  - Human           Homo sapiens            Feb 2009 hg19     chain net

To download a large file or multiple files from this directory, we recommend 
that you use rsync or ftp rather than downloading the files via our website.
There is approximately 333 MB of compressed data in this directory.

Via rsync:
rsync -avz --progress \
	rsync:// ./

Via FTP:
    user name: anonymous
    password: <your email address>
    go to the directory goldenPath/felCat4/phastCons6way

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.

All the files in this directory are freely available for public use.
For data use restrictions regarding the genome assemblies used in this
annotation, see
