# of overlapping CHIP seq peaks in cases with significant sequence conservation
# of overlapping CHIP seq peaks in cases with conservation of expression in A. lyrata
TAIR data set
* Counts are for individual non-identical CHIP-seq peaks. Significance of enrichment of CHIP-seq peaks using hypergeometric probability:
†, P = 0.02 (non-significant if a HB correction is applied, see Table 3), †† P = 0.001, ††† P < 0.0001.
¶ These total numbers of CHIP-seq peaks are highly significantly enriched compared to randomly sampled near-gene DNA (P < 0.00001, normal statistics). To assess this, for each of the three actual data sets listed, 500 samples of near-gene DNA of the same distribution of sizes and position relative to neighbour genes as the actual set were generated (as described in the Methods).
