  • Assessing the statistical significance of an observed 2x2 contingency table can easily be accomplished using Fisher's exact test (FET). However, if the cell entries are continuous or represent values inferred from a continuous parametric model, then FET cannot be applied. Such tables arise frequently in areas of biostatistical research including population genetics and evolutionary genomics, where cell entries are estimated by computational methods and result in cell entries drawn from the non… CONTINUE READING
