Illustration of statistical significance test. Illustration of the statistical significance test. Box plot demonstrates the P-value of null hypothesis of the DR genes over synthetic dataset. From the plot we clearly conclude that a higher gap between the control and non-control group of a DR gene leads to a lower P-value. The genes with a lower P-value have a higher chance of being primarily differentially regulated.
