VGP - Vertebrate Genomes Project assembly hub

VGP logo

This assembly hub contains assemblies released by the Vertebrate Genomes Project. (set of primary assemblies)

How to view the hub

Options:

  1. The links to the genome browser in the table below will attach that one specific assembly to the genome browser. This is most likely what you want. Alternatively, the entire set of assemblies can be attached as one group to the genome browser with the following links depending upon which of our mirror site browsers you prefer to use:
    attach all assemblies to selected site:   genome.ucsc.edu   genome-euro.ucsc.edu   genome-asia.ucsc.edu
  2. To manually attach all the assemblies in this hub to genome browsers that are not one of the three UCSC mirror sites:
    1. From the blue navigation bar, go to My Data -> Track Hubs
    2. Then select the My Hubs tab and enter this URL into the textbox:
      https://hgdownload.soe.ucsc.edu/hubs/VGP/hub.txt
    3. Once you have added the URL to the entry form, press the Add Hub button to add the hub.

After adding the hub, you will be redirected to the gateway page. The genome assemblies can be selected from the VGP Hub Assembly dropdown menu. Instead of adding all the assemblies in one collected group, use the individual view in browser in the table below.

See also: assembly statisticstrack statistics <== additional information for these assemblies.


Data resource links

NOTE: Click on the column headers to sort the table by that column

The common name and view in browser will attach only that single assembly to the genome browser.
The scientific name and data download link provides access to the files for that one assembly hub.
The class VGP link provides access to the VGP GenomeArk page for that genome.
The other links provide access to NCBI resources for these assemblies.
