This directory contains the Nov. 2009 (SGSC Sscrofa9.2/susScr2) assembly
of the pig genome (susScr2, SGSC Sscrofa9.2
(NCBI project 10718, GCA_000003025.2))
in one gzip-compressed FASTA file per chromosome.

This assembly was produced by the Swine Genome Sequencing Consortium
and Wellcome Trust Sange Institute.

For more information on the pig genome, see the project website:

Files included in this directory:

  - chr*.fa.gz: compressed FASTA sequence of each chromosome.

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/susScr2/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
