I'm new to working with HOMER and I'm trying to find binding at transcription start sites for mouse genome mm9 Chip-Seq data.

Based on following the HOMER online manual at this link:, my command is this:

/HOMER/bin/ sampleBed.bed tss mm9 -size -500,1000 > homerTestOutput.txt

However, this gives me the error:

Genome tss not found

Which I then tried installing with:

HOMER/.// -install tss

But that just gives me this error:

could not find package: "tss"

I'm pretty stuck here, any thoughts or help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

Seems like the mm9 TSS(mm9.tss) file is not present in Homer data folder. Reinstall the genome files using -install mm9 command. To get a list of available datasets and tools use -list command.
