Hi,

I want to run TargetScan on a non-model species. I have transcriptomes of several closely related species and can extract the UTRs. But I am not sure what's the best way to create the necessary alignment? I guess I have to first identify the correct homologous UTRs and give them the same name across species? And also retain the aligned sequences.

Anyone have attempted this before?

Thanks,

Hey, No, haven't done any more on this yet. But I guess what I will do is to run OrthoFinder or some other tool to identify orthologues. And then simply align the UTR's of each ortholog using MAFFT or something. But the exact procedure I haven't figured out yet. Let me know if you will do something similar.

Jon
