I want to compare the enrichment or overlapping between 2 lists. I found some paper use fisher's exact test, or other papers use GLM (logistic regression).

Does anyone know what the difference between two methods aforementioned is?

  • $\begingroup$ Use Logistic regression with a continuous independent variable with a binary output. Otherwise when the independent variable is discrete, I find the Fisher's exact test easier to understand and explain. $\endgroup$
