Can I get the conservation scores (GERP scores) for nucleotides in whole genome alignments?

Yes, obtain the conservation scores, described here, by downloading the emf files for multiple species alignments from our ftp site.


Alternatively, use the Compara Perl API to obtain the scores. An example script is provided here.
