This directory contains compressed multiple alignments of the 
following assemblies to the C. elegans genome (ce2, Mar. 2004):

  - C. briggsae (July 2002, cb1) 

The chr*.maf.gz files each contain all the alignments to that 
particular chromosome.  

For a description of multiple alignment format (MAF), see

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/ce2/multiz17way. To download 
multiple files, use the "mget" command:

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

All the files in this directory are freely usable for any 
purpose. For data use restrictions regarding the individual 
genome assemblies, see
