  1. Median intergene size of BPRs and randomised regions, classified in five classes of GC-content. For each class of GC content, the p-value of the non parametric Wilcoxon test between the BPRs and the randomized regions is given. GC content was measured inside each BPR region if the latter spans more than 50 kb, otherwise in a region of 50 kb centered on the BPR. Only regions whose central point lies inside an intergene are considered and the size of the latter is assigned to each region. The counts of regions in each class are indicated inside brackets.
