I decided to use HOMER in order to find known motifs in a file. My file is in BED format. Since I have BED files and .pos files, I decided to use findMotifGenome.pl and I call it as it is in the manual. I got this output where I have empty output file. After I checked the possible problems; even though bed2pos.pl, checkPeakFile.pl cleanUpPeak.pl etc are located in the bin file, they cannot be located thus I got this error. I got the same results with giving either BED/.pos file. Could you help me out with this?
I wish you all a good new year.
