Hi, I am trying to use the bedtools shuffle command to shuffle transcription factor binding locations. However, I was wondering if the "genome" option could be interchangeable with my own customised file of enhancers? Is it possible to have a file like this in the same format?

Could you please upload some lines of your file? So it will be easier to understand what exactly do you want.

If you have read the manual, you could do that with -incl -excl options.

If I understand your question correctly, your enhancer bed file should be given as -incl, so the random regions matching your TF bed file will be generated from enhancers.

for my -incl option I have selected the mappable regions (with a CRG score of 1) of the genome. Is it better to replace this with my enhancer file?
