This directory contains the Mar. 2007 assembly of the tetraodon genome
(tetNig2, Genoscope Tetraodon v8.0 (NCBI project 12350, CAAE01000000))
in one gzip-compressed FASTA file per chromosome.

This assembly was produced by Genoscope - Centre National de Séquençage
and the Broad Institute.

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

Files included in this directory:

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

    Repeats from RepeatMasker and Tandem Repeats Finder (with period
    of 12 or less) are shown in lower case; non-repeating sequence is
    shown in upper case.

    RepeatMasker was run with the -s (sensitive) setting.
    Repeat masker version: June 4 2009 (open-3-2-8)
    Library release 20090604

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/tetNig2/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

The Tetraodon sequence has been freely provided by Genoscope before
publication for use in the UCSC Genome Browser with the following

1. The data may be freely downloaded, used in analyses, and repackaged
   in databases.
2. Users are free to use the data in scientific papers analyzing particular
   genes and regions, provided that the Genoscope is properly acknowledged.
3. Genoscope reserves the right to publish the initial large-scale analyses
   of the dataset, including large-scale identification of regions of
   evolutionary conservation and large-scale genomic assembly. Large-scale
   refers to regions with size on the order of a Tetraodon chromosome (that
   is, 5 Mb or more).
4. Any redistribution of the data should carry this notice.
