This directory contains compressed phastCons scores for multiple alignments
of 6 vertebrate genomes to the medium ground finch genome, plus two alternate
set of scores for subsets of species in the alignments.

Files in this directory are:

  geoFor1.7way.phastCons.mod - phastCons tree model for the 7 species
  geoFor1.7way.phastCons.birds.mod - phastCons tree model for the birds subset:
          geoFor1 taeGut1 melUnd1 galGal4 melGal1
          (medium ground finch, zebra finch, budgerigar, chicken, turkey)
  geoFor1.7way.phastCons.vertebrate.mod - tree model for vertebrate subset:
          geoFor1 hg19 mm10
          (medium ground finch, human, mouse)

Note, geoFor1 is included in each subset since it is the reference species.

phastCons scores in bigWig format files: - all 7 species - birds subset - vertebrate subset

phastCons scores in fixed step wiggle format files:
   geoFor1.7way.phastCons/phastCons7way.wigFix.gz - scores for 7 species
   birds/phastCons7way.birds.wigFix.gz - scores for the birds subset
   vertebrate/phastCons7way.vertebrate.wigFix.gz - scores for the vertebrate subset

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 8.5 Gb of compressed data in this directory.

Via rsync:
rsync -avz --progress \

    go to the directory goldenPath/geoFor1/phastCons7way

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.
