Welcome to refgenomes.databio.org. Here we provide a web interface and a RESTful API to access genome assets for popular reference genome assemblies. This server is running refgenieserver. You may use the refgenie CLI to automate downloading and organizing these assets using refgenie pull ... from the command line to retrieve archived genome assets.

Below is a list of assets hosted by this server:
