Latest version:

Version 1: The dataset has been reprocessed as described in Palkopoulou et al (2018), (Supplementary Information Notes 4 and 5). Data are available in several forms:


(A) Raw sequence data

(A1) Original sequence data (in bam format) for elephantid samples sequenced in Palkopoulou et al, 2018 are available through the European Nucleotide Archive under accession number PRJEB24361,
(A2) Raw sequence data for some of these samples are available through ENA projects PRJNA281811, PRJNA301482 (Lynch et al. 2015; and Reddy et al., J.Biosci. 2015, respectively),
(A3) Original sequence data (in bam format) for some of these samples are available through ENA projects PRJEB7929, PRJEB18563 (Palkopoulou et al., 2015; and Meyer et al., 2017, respectively).

(B) Reference genome

The most recent update of the savanna elephant reference genome (LoxAfr4) is available at: ftp://ftp.broadinstitute.org/pub/assemblies/mammals/elephant/loxAfr4/.

(C) Alignments

Alignments files are very large. Depending on your connection, it may take a very long time (i.e. hours/days) to download a single file.
