Data availability

Notes on downloading files.

Files are generously hosted by Amazon Web Services. Although available as straight-forward HTTP links, download performance is improved by using the Amazon Web Services command-line interface. References should be amended to use the s3:// addressing scheme, i.e. replace with s3://nanopore-human-wgs to download. For example, to download rel3-nanopore-wgs-288418386-FAB39088 to the current working directory use the following command.

aws s3 cp s3://nanopore-human-wgs/rel3-nanopore-wgs-288418386-FAB39088.fastq.gz .

Amending the max_concurrent_requests etc. settings as per this guide will improve download performance further.
