Default Statistical analysis

Hi folks,
I am a bit confused as to the possible statistical tools I could use in my analyses. Basically I have a number of observed genes for each gene family and a list of the number of known genes per family. the numbers of the observed are much much lower than the expected as I used universal primers and have smaller subsets of these gene families. If I do a chi square test it tells me I have significant differences. My distribution visually looks the same as the expected distribution so the of genes are similar relative to the other families, is there some statistical analysis where I can compare numbers of observed and expected with respect to other observed and expected numbers?
