The maf/chr*.maf.gz files each contain all the alignments to that particular human chromosome. The multiz28wayAnno.tar.gz file contains the same alignments for all chromsomes, with additional annotations to indicate gap context, genomic breaks, and quality scores for the sequence in the underlying genome assemblies. The maf/upstream*.maf.gz files contain alignments in regions upstream of annotated transcription starts for RefSeq genes with annotated 5' UTRs. These files differ from the standard MAF format: they display alignments that extend from start to end of the upstream region in human, whether or not alignments actually exist. In situations where no alignments exist or the alignments of one or more species are missing, dot (".") is used as a placeholder. Multiple regions of an assembly's sequence may align to a single region in human; therefore, only the species name is displayed in the alignment data and no position information is recorded. The alignment score is always zero in these files. These files are updated weekly. For a description of multiple alignment format (MAF), see http://genome.ucsc.edu/goldenPath/help/maf.html. PhastCons conservation scores for these alignments are available at: http://hgdownload.cse.ucsc.edu/goldenPath/hg18/phastCons28way --------------------------------------------------------------- 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 hgdownload.cse.ucsc.edu user name: anonymous password: <your email address> go to the directory goldenPath/hg18/multiz28way 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 usable for any purpose.
