I have the FASTA sequence of a human gene derived from a BAC library, and I would like to align the sequence to the ENCODE database to see if there are any putative non-coding regulatory elements in my sequence (and where exactly they are located). Is there any way this could be done? I would appreciate any help. Thank you!

what exactly do you mean with "the ENCODE database"?

if you go to and know the region where your gene is located in the human genome, you can apparently simply fill in the 'search for regulatory elements" field
