We received info to download the final data and genome assembly files for geoduck and Olympia oyster from BGI.
In total, the downloads took a little over three days to complete!
The notebook detailing how the files were downloaded is below, but it should be noted that I had to strip the output cells because the output from the download command made the file too large to upload to GitHub, and the size of the notebook file would constantly crash the browser/computer that it was opened in. So, the notebook below is here for posterity.
