This directory contains compressed phastCons scores for multiple
alignments of the following yeasts to the Saccharomyces cerevisiae 
genome (sacCer1):
- Saccharomyces paradoxus
- Saccharomyces mikatae
- Saccharomyces kudriavzevii
- Saccharomyces bayanus
- Saccharomyces castelli
- Saccharomyces kluyveri

For a description of the phastCons file format, see --
scroll to the section "File Format (assemblies prior to Nov. 2004)".

If you plan to download a large file or multiple files from this 
directory, we recommend you use ftp rather than downloading the files 
via our website. To do so, ftp to, then go to 
the directory goldenPath/sacCer1/phastCons. 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 available for public use.
For data use restrictions regarding the genome assemblies used in this
annotation, see
