    Question on Odds ratio




    Hi,

    I have a basic understanding of odds ratio. I can't figure out how to integrate the space S into my odds ratio equation.

    For the following figure:
    S has 23000 genes, (all genes)
    A has 751 genes and (condition1)
    B has 375 genes (condition2)



    How do I calculate the OR for A ∩ B?

    Thanks

    What is the equation? Do you have any work to show?

    I did not follow your example/problem at all. If possible please rephrase it or provide more information.


    I would start by trying to put your data into a classification table (AKA, confusion matrix).
