This directory contains the Apr. 2011 (SacCer_Apr2011/sacCer3) assembly of
the S. cerevisiae genome (sacCer3, Saccharomyces cerevisiae S288c assembly
from Saccharomyces Genome Database (GCA_000146055.2))
in one gzip-compressed FASTA file per chromosome.

This assembly is based on sequence dated April 2011 in the Saccharomyces Genome
Database ( and was obtained from the site

The S288C strain was used in this sequencing project.

Files included in this directory:

  - chr*.fa.gz: compressed FASTA sequence of each chromosome.
        No masking has been applied to this sequence.
  - md5sum.txt: md5sum checksums for the files in this directory. 

If you plan 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 to, then 
go to the directory goldenPath/sacCer3/chromosomes. To download multiple 
files, use the "mget" command:

    mget <filename1> <filename2> ...
    - or -
    mget -a (to download all the files in the directory)

Alternate methods to ftp access.
Using an rsync command to download the entire directory:
    rsync -avzP rsync:// .
For a single file, e.g. chrM.fa.gz
    rsync -avzP 
        rsync:// .
Or with wget, all files:
    wget --timestamping 
With wget, a single file:
    wget --timestamping 
        -O chrM.fa.gz
To uncompress the fa.gz files:
    gunzip <file>.fa.gz

All the tables in this directory are freely available for public use.
