These alignments were prepared using the methods described in the
track description file:
based on the phylogenetic tree: hg38.17way.nh

Files in this directory:
 - hg38.17way.nh - phylogenetic tree used during the multiz multiple alignment
 - hg38.17way.commonNames.nh - same as hg38.17way.nh with the UCSC database
       name replaced by the common name for the species
 - hg38.17way.scientificNames.nh - same as hg38.17way.nh with the UCSC database
       name replaced by the scientific name for the species
 - upstream1000.knownGene.maf.gz - alignments in regions upstream, see below
 - upstream2000.knownGene.maf.gz - alignments in regions upstream, see below
 - upstream5000.knownGene.maf.gz - alignments in regions upstream, see below
 - hg38.17way.maf.gz - alignments with gap annotation
 - md5sum.txt - MD5 sum of the files to verify downloads

The "alignments" directory contains compressed FASTA alignments
for the UCSC Known Gene CDS regions of the human genome
(hg38, Dec. 2013) aligned to the assemblies.  Additional
alignment files are provided for RefSeq genes, and the
UCSC Known Gene canonical genes.

The hg38.17way.maf.gz file contains the alignments to
the human assembly, with additional annotations to
indicate gap context, and genomic breaks for the
sequence in the underlying genome assemblies.  Beware, the compressed
data size of this file is 8.5 Gb, uncompressed is approximately 63 Gb.

The upstream*.maf.gz files contain alignments in regions upstream of
annotated transcription starts for UCSC Known 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 
mouse, 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 the human sequence; 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.

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 31 Gb 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/hg38/multiz17way

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. For data use restrictions regarding the individual
