Illumina iGenomes

In an effort to make NGS data analysis more accessible, Illumina have provided packages of pre-indexed genomes and annotation files in one bundle. For instance you can get the Bowtie/TopHat indexes here for a range of organisms.
The iGenomes are a collection of sequence and annotation files for commonly
analyzed genomes. Each iGenome contains data for one species, downloaded from one source (UCSC, NCBI, or Ensembl), for one genomic build
.
