This directory contains alignments of the following assemblies:

  - target/reference: Zebrafish (danRer3, May 2005, Sanger Centre, Danio rerio Sequencing Project Zv5)

  - query: Human (hg18, Mar. 2006, NCBI Build 36)

Files included in this directory:

  - md5sum.txt: md5sum checksums for the files in this directory

  - danRer3.hg18.all.chain.gz: chained blastz alignments. The chain format is
    described in .

  - "net" file that describes rearrangements between 
    the species and the best Human match to any part of the
    Zebrafish genome.  The net format is described in .

  - axtNet/* chained and netted alignments,
    i.e. the best chains in the Zebrafish genome, with gaps in the best
    chains filled in by next-best chains where possible.  The axt format is
    described in .

The chainSwap program was used to translate hg18-referenced chained blastz
alignments to danRer3 into danRer3-referenced chains aligned to hg18.  See
the download directory goldenPath/hg18/vsDanRer3/README.txt for more
information about the hg18-referenced blastz and chaining process.
Lineage-specific repeats were not used for alignments involving zebrafish
chrUn and chrNA. Instead, the M parameter was set to 50 in order to use the
dynamic masking functionality of Blastz.

Chained alignments were processed into nets by the chainNet, netSyntenic,
and netClass programs.
Best-chain alignments in axt format were extracted by the netToAxt program.
All programs run after blastz were written by Jim Kent at UCSC.

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/danRer3/vsHg18/. To download multiple files, use the "mget"

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

All files in this directory are freely available for public use.
