This file is from:

This directory contains conservation scoring by phyloP (phylogenetic p-values)
from the PHAST package ( for multiple
alignments of 123 genome sequences to the reference assembly:
    D. melanogaster/dm6/Aug. 2014

See also: assemblyInformation.txt for information about which
          assemblies have been used in this 124-way multiple alignment

Files in this directory:

    dm6.124way.phyloP/*.wigFix.gz - scores in fixed step wiggle format
    dm6.phyloP124way.mod - phyloP tree model with branch lengths for
                            all 124 species - scores in bigWig format
    md5sum.txt - MD5 checksums to verify download files
    nameCrossReference.txt - tab separated columns with the different names
                           - for these sequences and databases, columns:
                       1. sequence name - UCSC database or scientific name
                                        - sequence names used in MAF files
                       2. NCBI accession
                       3. NCBI taxon identifier
                       4. assembly name
                       5. scientific name
    assemblyInformation.txt - summary listing of each sequence used

they are approximately 258 Mb of compressed data.  The entire set of
data in this directory is approximately 706 Mb.

To download a large file or multiple files from this directory, we recommend 
that you use rsync or ftp rather than downloading the files via our website:

   rsync -avz --progress \
        rsync:// ./

    go to the directory goldenPath/dm6/phyloP124way

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.

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