A genetic motif extracting apparatus is adapted to extract a motif from genetic sequence information, where the motif has a regularity in a distinctive feature that specifies a genetic function. The genetic motif extracting apparatus includes a weight calculation unit for calculating a weight of each genetic sequence from a length of at least one branch of an evolution tree structure that is related to a plurality of genetic sequences, a score calculation unit for calculating a score that indicates a degree of similarity of sequence elements of the genetic sequences appearing at a site for each site of the genetic sequences using the weight calculated by the weight calculation unit, and a feature information extraction unit for extracting a part of the genetic sequence having the regularity in the distinctive feature as the motif based on the score calculated by the score calculation unit.
