forth. Provide the name of a UCSC genome build and optionally a description to display in

To get started, find the desired data source by going to http://genome.ucsc.edu/cgi-
bin/hgGateway and using the "clade" and "genome" menus to navigate to the desired species
and build number. You will find the data source name in the blue box below the navigation
controls. Look for something like this:
