  • Power Analysis - Sample Size Calculation

    Hi all,
    We have been asked by reviewers of a grant application to provide them with a power analysis, to determine how many biological replicates we were including in our RNAseq experiment.
    While there are resources available to easily do sample size calculations for microarray experiments by uploading a pilot experiment, I guess RNAseq is too new for the equivalent to exist.
    Does anybody have tools to do that, clues or thoughts on the topic?
    Thanks very much in advance!

    Hi jroussarie,
    We are wondering the same thing. Have you had any luck with the approaches described here?
    Thanks!

      Power Analysis - sample size calculation

      Dear Forum,

      I would like to withdraw my previous post on the subject.
      The best way I can figure is:

      1. log2 transform number of counts,logcounts=log2(counts+1), for
      each replicate of "typical" transcript.
      2.Based on these numbers perform power/sample size calculation as
      for a t-test. use p=.001 to compensate approximately for multiple testing.

      With hopes that this helps,
      Rich

        Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
        by seqadmin


        The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

        Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
        by seqadmin




        The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
