Dear Users,

I performed motif analysis for Chip-seq data using HOMER.

I want to generate a plot from HOMER output having Distance between binding sites (bp) in X-axis and

Number of binding sites in Y-axis. I am not able to interpret from HOMER motif results which data has to be considered for generating such plots.

Any suggestions.

Thanks

Abhi

Can you provide an example plot or few lines of data ?

AnnotatePeaks should be able to do this. 

annotatePeaks peakfile1.bed genome -size # -hist # -noadj -d peakfile1.bed > output.txt

Here the first peak file will be the reference against which the second peak file will be plotted against. 

-size # is the area around the first peak file about which you want to plot the second peak file. i.e. -size 500 would be +/-250 bp around the first peak file

-noadj option means you don't normalize the # of peaks or reads in either dataset, so the Y-axis should give you the number of peaks in each plot.

-hist# refers to the bin size

Check out the HOMER manual, under the "Histograms of Tag Directories" heading. This gives you instructions that I think will help you, straight from the author of the tool, rather than a novice, such as myself.
