This file is from:

This directory contains conservation scoring by phyloP (phylogenetic p-values)
from the PHAST package ( 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
  - Mouse           Mus musculus            Jul 2007 mm9      chain net
  - Opossum         Monodelphis domestica   Oct 2006 monDom5  chain net

Files in this directory are:
    all.mod      phyloP tree model with branch lengths
                 for all 6 species
                 (felCat4, canFam2, ailMel1, hg19, mm9 monDom5)
    phyloP6way.wigFix.gz  phyloP scores for all 6 species   phyloP scores for all 6 species in bigWig format
    md5sum.txt - md5 check sums of these files to verify correct download files

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:

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


    user name: anonymous
    password: <your email address>
    go to the directory goldenPath/felCat4/phyloP6way

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.
