Genomic region and gene association graphs

The plots shown on the term first graph, "Number of associated regions per gene", is the inverse of the first graph shown on the main output page, and shows The "Number of associated genes per region" graph shows how many genomic regions are assigned as putatively regulating each gene based on the association rule used. This information can indicate whether enriched terms are due to a spread of input regions associated with many genes or if a few genes annotated with the term receive a large number of genomic regions associated with them (suggesting possible gene-specific enrichment rather than a broader term-specific enrichment).

The distance graphs shown on the term details page are created in a similar manner to the genome-wide association graphs. However, in addition to showing the data from the entire set of genomic regions, also displayed are the subset of associations between regions and genes annotated with the ontology term of interest.
