This file is from:

This directory contains conservation scoring by phyloP (phylogenetic p-values)
from the PHAST package ( for multiple
alignments of 11 vertebrate genomes to the chimp genome, plus alternate sets
of scores for a subset of five primate species in the alignments.

Files in this directory are:
    vertebrate.mod      phyloP tree model with branch lengths
                        for all 12 species
		panTro3 hg19 ponAbe2 rheMac2 calJac3 equCab2 canfam2 mm9 rn4
		monDom5 galGal3 danRer7
		  (chimp, human, orangutan, rhesus, marmoset, horse, dog,
			mouse, rat, opossum chicken, zebrafish)
    primate.mod            phyloP tree model for the primate subset:
		panTro3 hg19 ponAbe2 rheMac2 calJac3
		(chimp, human, orangutan, rhesus, marmoset)

    go to the directory goldenPath/panTro3/phyloP12way

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)
