Hello,

I need to download WGS data from the GSA server. I usually download from ENA, using Aspera to increase download speed (specifically, using ena-fast-download).
Anybody knows if/how I can use Aspera to download from GSA? I found this document which explains how to upload to GSA using Aspera, so I guess the server supports that.
Can you help me figure out the command for downloading?
Thanks!

Just updating that I got a helpful answer from the GSA team.
Apparently, to download a whole data set you can run:

./ascp -i [/path/to/the/key/file] -P33001 -QT -l100m -k1 aspera01@download.big.ac.cn:/gsa3/<data set ID> [/path/to/your/local/directory/] 

To download a specific run:

./ascp -i [/path/to/the/key/file] -P33001 -QT -l100m -k1 aspera01@download.big.ac.cn:/gsa3/<data set ID>/<run ID> [/path/to/your/local/directory/]

I've also created a feature request to add GSA to the Kingfisher download tool.
