Table 2 Conditional probabilities that two core promoter elements are spaced in a synergistically-favorable manner, given that both elements are present

From: Genome-wide analysis of core promoter elements from conserved human and mouse orthologous pairs

Core promoter element pairs p(synergy | both elements present) One-tailed significance of synergy p(synergy | both elements present and conserved in mouse counterparts) One-tailed significance of synergy
