After completing the downloads of these files from BGI, I needed to verify that the downloaded copies matched the originals. Below is a Jupyter Notebook detailing how I verified file integrity via MD5 checksums. It also highlights the importance of doing this check when working with large sequencing files (or, just large files in general), as a few of them had mis-matching MD5 checksums!
Although the notebook is embedded below, it might be easier viewing via the notebook link (hosted on GitHub).
At the end of the day, I had to re-download some files, but all the MD5 checksums match and these data are ready for analysis:
