I have used a python script to identify target sequences in a DNA sequence file. There are two classes of sequence: coding and non-coding.
I have identified 728 sequences of interest. 597 of these fall into the coding regions and 131 of these fall into the non-coding regions. This is the equivalent of 18% non-coding. The total non-coding region in the sequence file is 13%.
Is there a statistical tool to demonstrate the python script identified target sequences in a non-random fashion? If the script identified sequences that were randomly distributed then 13% of them would have been found in the non-coding region, from a total of 728 this seems like it should be reliable.
