I've downloaded a set of bams from Illumina's Platinum Genomes experiment (hosted at EBI) and would like to do due diligence and perform a checksum check, but I can't find any published for these files.

Has anyone else downloaded the bam files from and run md5sum on them? These are the CEPH pedigree sequenced to 50x depth.

If so I'd be very grateful for the results to do a comparison (I can publish the checksum values I get once its finished running).

EBI are actually very good at storing their data and usually have the md5 checksums among the files.

To find the md5 number for your data: look at their data table for the accession number instead of raw FTP access:

Click on "select columns", then on "submitted md5" and voila -- md5 is there. There's a bunch of other metadata there as well.

NB: If you want to parse this from code checkout the text view

Brilliant, thanks so much for that. Been scratching my head comparing it to 1000 Genomes files which have the .bai and .bas with md5 in them.
