This file is from:

This directory contains conservation scoring by phyloP (phylogenetic p-values)
from the PHAST package ( for multiple
alignments of 7 fish genomes to the Fugu genome.

Files in this directory are:
    fish.mod - phyloP tree model with branch lengths for all 8 species:
                        fugu, tetraodon, nile tilapia, stickleback, medaka,
                        atlantic cod, zebrafish, coelacanth)

    phyloP8way.wigFix.gz phyloP scores for all 8 species, wiggle fixed step phyloP scores for all 8 species in bigWig format
