This directory contains compressed phastCons scores for multiple
alignments of 9 vertebrate genomes to the opossum genome.

Files in this directory are:

                                 for all nine species

    wig/chr*.wig.gz              per-chromosome phastCons scores for all 9

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.
There is approximately 3.8 Gb of compressed data in this directory.

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

Via FTP:

    go to the directory goldenPath/monDom5/phastCons9way

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.
