Source code     2.4.4         03/14/2022

Source code     2.4.3         08/14/2021

Binary       Windows, Mac OS, Linux



Go the source folder, and run "make" command, a binary will produced in the "bin" folder



Minimum 16GB RAM, if you install from the source code, the g++ complier is also required.



grit -m motif -i homoseq -b bgseq [-n sampling_times] [-z sampling_size] [-s rs] [-t pvalue] [- pscore] -o output



-m PWMs for transcription factors

-i putative promoter sequence for orthologues genes  

-b background sequences

-n sampling times, how many times sampling from background sequences, default = 10

-z sampling size, default = 200

-s raw score, 1 for RS1, 2 for RS2, default = 1

-t p-value threshold, TFBS with p-value less than will p-value threshold be reported, default = 0.05

-p p-score threshold, TFBS with p-score less than will be reported p-score threshold, default = 0

-o output, output file name

Dataset for GSEA

GSEA dataset created based on Gritresults (Jaspar-2020): Grit_FDR_E-12_Cutoff_2_GSEA, Grit_FDR_E-9_Cutoff_2_GSEA, Grit_FDR_E-6_Cutoff_2_GSEA.txt

Important: before run these dataset with GSEA, should set max_size paramater to 5000 or higher.



An example run should like: grit -m Jaspar-2019.txt -i homoseq-v100-part1.txt -b bgseq-rdm20000.txt -n 10 -z 200 -s 1 -t 0.05 -p 0 -o result-v100-part1.txt

This command took three input files: Jaspar-2019.txt, homoseq-v100-part1.txt, bgseq-rdm20000.txt. After finished run it will produce an output file named: result-v100-part1.txt
