Dear Peter:
Thank you for your reply!

Actually, I have used MEME before. But it need your give it several parameters: 
Short or Wide motif, how many you want to get etc. And, it did not use Alignment methods.

So, what I prefer is I send an alignment in to it, and it give out motif(highly conserve)
region. I think PROSITE and BLOCKS are make in this way. But I can not find a suitble software 
that can run under my PC and be merged into a batch work.

Could you give me more comments?

Thank you!
