About UniBind TFBS extraction

The UniBind TFBS extraction tool allows the extraction of TFBSs from the UniBind database within a set of genomic regions of interest provided as a BED file.

Optionally, the tool also allows for the filtering of the results with either a set of transcription factors or experiment IDs. These can be provided as separate files containing one entry per line. Please note that TFs should be provided as gene symbols.

TFBS extraction tool output and example


The output of the extraction tool is a BED file with the TFBSs overlapping with the input regions. When a list of TFs and/or experiment lists is provided, the output file will only contain TFBSs for the TFs/experiments described in the input lists.


As an example of application, we provide example BED, TFs and experiment files in our bitbucket repository. The tool can also be run from its command-line interface with the following command:

extract_TFBSs_bedtools_gzip.sh -i INPUT BED -b GZIPPED BED [-t TFs] [-e EXPERIMENT IDs] [-o OUTPUT DIR]

When running the command-line interface, the output is printed to standard output when no output directory is specified.
