I have a bed files contain coordinates of one specific type of repetitive DNA in a chromosome. e.g.
0 190 TEsI
2844 2881 TEsI
2881 2988 TEsI
Now I'm interested in few specific regions, they about 10 kb in length. My supervisor asked me to comment on whether or not there is statistical significance in number of these types of repetitive DNA in these regions. I've plotted this:
Red stripe shows the position of region, horizontal black and green dashed lines indicate mean value and mean value with standard deviation for the whole chromosome with bin sizes of 100 kb (because this plot covers about 100 kb). How to test null hypothesis (there is no significance) here? Thank you in advance
