I want to find the binding sites for a particular transcription factor among the whole genome. Maybe the results could be something like bed files which indicate the potential TFBS. I read some question about finding TFBS. But most of the question is about finding potential transcription factor in a certain gene region. If there's any software can do such thing?

Thanks!

You could use TRANSFAC database to construct specific binding site weight matrices, which can then be used for your TFBS prediction.

There are several tools that do this. example: PROMO, TRANSFAC, JASPER. For tools that predict all the possible TFBS, you could just parse the result to get only the sites for a particular transcription factor of interest.
