Fraction of repeat types with intersecting canonical and instance-based CIs
Average ratio of canonical and instance-based CI sizes
Using mES data for different chromatin marks, the table shows the fraction of repeat types for which estimates based on canonical and instance read counts were statistically consistent. Only repeat types for which the canonical confidence interval (CI) did not include 0 (that is, significant enrichment was detected) were considered in the analysis. The canonical and instance-based estimates are typically consistent for 70% of the repeat types; however, instance-based estimates provide, on average, much smaller confidence intervals.
