This page contains links to sequence and annotation data
downloads for the genome assemblies featured in the UCSC Genome
Browser. Table downloads are also
available via the Genome Browser
For quick access to the most recent assembly of each genome,
current genomes directory.
This directory may be useful to individuals with automated
scripts that must always reference the most recent assembly.
To view the current descriptions and formats of the tables in
the annotation database, use the "describe table
schema" button in the Table Browser. The
of the annotation database page (no longer maintained)
also provides descriptions of selected tables in the database.
All tables in the Genome Browser are freely usable for
any purpose except as indicated in the README.txt files in the
download directories. To view restrictions specific to a
particular data set, click on the corresponding download link
and review the README text. These data were
contributed by many researchers, as listed on the Genome Browser credits
page. Please acknowledge the contributor(s) of the data you use.
