Abstract

In Example 3 of Section 3.4.3 we considered the test of the hypothesis that the probabilities for the four nucleotides in a DNA sequence are equal to a set of prescribed values. In this section we consider the test of the hypothesis that the two sets of probabilities for the four nucleotides in two DNA sequences are equal, no specific claim being made as to what the probabilities are. The data used for this test are as given in Table 6.1.
