Dear all, for people that have experience with ChIPpeakAnno: please could you let me know in more detail the meaning of "totalTest " in "makeVennDiagram" function ; as depending on the totalTest value, the p-value can change significantly. thanks a lot, Bogdan [[alternative HTML version deleted]]

Hi Bogdan, The output p-vlaue of makeVennDiagram is obtained from hypergeometric test. You can try > ?hyper to get more info.

The p-value is calculated by hypergeometric test to determine whether the peaks or features are overlapped significantly in the makeVennDiagram function. Hypergeometric test requires users to input an estimate of the total potential binding sites (peaks) for a given TF. To circumvent this requirement, a permutation test function called permTest has also been implemented in ChIPpeakAnno package. 

Here is an example:
