    mget -a (to download all the files in the directory) 

The rsync command to download the entire directory:
    rsync -avzP rsync:// .
For a single file, e.g. chromFa.tar.gz
    rsync -avzP \
     rsync:// .

Or with wget, all files:
    wget --timestamping \
With wget, a single file:
    wget --timestamping \
    '' \
	-O chromFa.tar.gz
