Table 4 Causes of transition between non-overlapping and overlapping states.

From: Overlapping genes in the human and mouse genomes

Types of overlap 5' change1 3' change2 Chi-square goodness-of-fit test3
Same-strand 16 (36%) 28 (64%) χ2 = 3.27 (p = 0.07)
Different-strand 220 (40%) 327 (60%) χ2 = 20.93 (p = 4.8e-6)
  1. 1 The number of cases that show a 5' change. Corresponding percentages are in parenthesis.
  2. 2 The number of cases that show a 3' change.
  3. 3 Test for equal proportions of 5' and 3' change.
