I would like to download GC percent data for hg38 for different window sizes, particularly 5bp. I can download this file from UCSC for hg19 but not for hg38.

Does anyone know a way? Thank you in advance for any help.

Yes I know, but with this option, the output file can only have 100,000 lines. I am interested in the whole genome. The same page says that 'the entire dataset may be available on downloads page'. But this page has gc%data only for hg19.

May be this file is not available at all for hg38 yet?

You can download "GC Percent" simply trough UCSC table browser. Select assembly ("hg38") and group ("Mapping and Sequencing").

GRCh37/38(NCBI) vs hg19/hg38(UCSC)

This is a direct FTP link to the required file

Thanks for that direct FTP link...

I am looking for the equivalent of but in hg38. Any idea how can I convert this .bw (bigwig?) format into an identical format to the above link?

(Trying to perform CNV calling using pennCNV but with the hg38 genomebuild.)
