I've got a genome sequence (in scaffolds), in fasta format, RNA-seq bam files, predicted gene models from Braker and Augustus, I was wondering how to predict motifs. How can I detect motifs, say in the highly expressed genes? I have been reading about MEME, Hommer, etc, does it matter if my genome is from parasites, not humans?

Do I have to use Chip-Seq data?

Thanks K

Hi Kay,

there's many options, depending on the kind of motifs you're looking for

All of these tools should support non model organisms, though a bit caution is always required

thanks Carambakaracho, I will have a look, my concern is genes predicted braker or Augustus lack promoter/enhancer/silencer regions, these tools prict genes from the start codons till stop codons
