Hi all:

is there any tools that can be used to scan an input sequence and predict any potential regulatory element within that sequence?

in fact i got one such sequence (chicken) which was supposed to be bound by some regulator, e.g., TF, however, we are not sure what the exact regulator is?

so I guess that I may first try to identify the binding element within that sequence first, than experiment may go further to help detect that TF.

am I right ?

Thanks in advance!

The website http://www.softberry.com/ has lots of different prediction tools. Personally I think most of these kinds of prediction tools are pretty trash though, so proceed with caution.

Your best chance is to use FIMO from the MEME suite and compare your sequence to the Chicken DNA Binding Protein Motifs Databases.

I recommend using a Galaxy version of FIMO if you are not familiar with command-line tools.

One issue is that MEME doesn't have a Chicken DNA binding protein motifs database. Reading literature about motifs analyses in chicken might help you determine which database you need to use.
