Is there an appropriate statistical or performance test to perform when I want to compare genomic intervals between 2 samples. Sample A is the the benchmark of comparing the intervals and sample B is the sample in question. What I am really looking for is not only how many intervals from sample B did indeed overlap with sample A but additionally what intervals from sample B has intervals that don't overlap with sample A and also those intervals in sample A that don't overlap with B and being able to measure the performance of how accurate sample B intervals overlap with sample A. This in some sense, can be translated into the following:
- True positive: intervals from sample B that overlap with sample A.
- False positive: intervals from sample B that don't overlap with sample A.
- False negative: intervals from sample A that don't overlap with sample B.
If I consider the above schema, then I will not be able to do any of the performance and statistical test (ROC curve or accuracy) because it is not possible to know what the true negative and the true negative are needed parameters. Then, what would should I be using to be able to incorporate the above schema and still apply performance and statistical testing.
I highly appreciate any help or pointers in advance.
