This directory contains the Feb. 2006 assembly of the stickleback genome
(gasAcu1, Broad Institute gasAcu1 (1.0)) in one gzip-compressed FASTA file per chromosome.

This assembly was produced by the Broad Institute at MIT and Harvard.
For more information on the stickleback genome, see the project website:

Files included in this directory:

  - chr*.fa.gz: compressed FASTA sequence of each chromosome.

    Repeats from RepeatMasker and Tandem Repeats Finder (with period
    of 12 or less) are shown in lower case; non-repeating sequence is
    shown in upper case.

    RepeatMasker was run with the -s (sensitive) setting.
    The March 20 2006 (open-3-1-5) version of RepeatMasker and library 
    release 20060315 were used.

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/gasAcu1/chromosomes. To download multiple 
files, use the "mget" command:

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

The stickleback sequence is made freely available before scientific 
publication with the following understanding: 

1. The data may be freely downloaded, used in analyses, and repackaged in
2. Users are free to use the data in scientific papers analyzing particular 
genes and regions if the providers of these data (The Broad Institute) are 
properly acknowledged. 
3. The centers producing the data reserve the right to publish the initial
large-scale analyses of the data set, including large-scale identification of
regions of evolutionary conservation and large-scale genomic assembly.
Large-scale refers to regions with size on the order of a chromosome (that is,
30 Mb or more). 
4. Any redistribution of the data should carry this notice.
