I have gene expression data (dependent variable) for 4 population groups (group as fixed/categorical variable) but this data is not normally distributed. I want determine if age/BMI () can affect the statistical significance within groups.

Which type of covariate analysis should be performed for not normally distributed data? I am not sure if covariate analysis is performed only for normally distributed data.

If anyone knows please reply me. Thanks in advance!
