This directory contains conservation scoring by phyloP (phylogenetic p-values)
from the PHAST package ( for multiple
alignments of 7 vertebrate genomes to the zebrafish genome, plus alternate sets
of scores for a subset of five fish species in the alignments.

Files in this directory are:
    vertebrate.mod      phyloP tree model with branch lengths
                        for all 8 species
		hg19 mm9 xenTro2 tetNig2 fr2 gasAcu1 oryLat2 danRer7
  (human, mouse, X. tropicalis, tetraodon, fugu, stickleback, medaka, zebrafish)
    fish.mod            phastCons tree model for the fish subset:
		tetNig2 fr2 gasAcu1 oryLat2 danRer7
		(tetraodon, fugu, stickleback, medaka, zebrafish)

    vertebrate.phyloP8way.wigFix.gz phyloP scores for all 8 species phyloP scores for all 8 species in bigWig format
    fish.phyloP8way.wigFix.gz  phyloP scores for fish subset  phyloP scores for fish subset in bigWig format

    go to the directory goldenPath/danRer7/phyloP8way

To download multiple files from the UNIX command line, use the "mget" command. 
    mget <filename1> <filename2> ...
    - or -
    mget -a (to download all the files in the directory) 
Use the "prompt" command to toggle the interactive mode if you do not want 
to be prompted for each file that you download.
