I am trying to look at the promotor of a gene of interest (e.g. VEGF, mouse mm9) by using IGV. I dont know how to get it. The manual did not help me much. I guess that for a well annotated gene one should find without much difficulty the gene regulatory elements such as promotors. In the Tools menu I picked the option Find Motif and eventually typed TATA having in mind that this motif must not always indicate a promotor region, just for the sake of trying. What I got is thousand of spots aligned on two tracks below the pictogram of the VEGF gene displaying the exons and introns.
Can you help me finding gene regulatory elements, more particularly the promotor, of a given gene by using IGV ?
