I have downloaded sets of files from MEME online server, showing regulatory regions. I would like to show them in hg19 genome assembly.

Dear Fee,

Unfortunately GenomeBrowse does not have the functionality to convert GTF format to GFF file format.

However, the Convert Wizard that is available within the software can directly support conversion of the GTF formatted data. The Convert Wizard can be accessed by going to File > Add then clicking Convert in the lower left corner of the Data Source Library. Once the GTF data is converted to TSF (Golden Helix annotation format) then it can be loaded into the GenomeBrowse plot window for visualization.

If you are not looking to visualize the data in GenomeBrowse then there are several third party conversion tools available to get your data in GFF format. Below is one example from the Sequence Ontology group.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

Thanks, Jami...
