  • data inclusion for dispersion estimates in DEseq?

    I guess I mostly am asking the DESeq team, ie. Simon Anders, but wanted to put this out there for others doing similar experiments.

    I want to make a series of pair-wise comparisons, A vs. B, A vs. C, A vs. D, etc. I have 2 replicates per time point. When measuring dispersion using DEseq, is it more sound to do so off of the full count table (a1 a2 b1 b2 c1 c2...) or just off of the data you are looking at for that particular test (a1 a2 c1 c2)?

    Having set it up both ways, I get more genes above any given padj cutoff if I measure dispersion on the more limited set, but is this being sloppy?


    Somewhat relatedly, if my dispersion graph is really ugly (many points are really far from the red line), but I am still getting tons of genes with padj <0.05, can I assume that the differences that I am seeing are statistically valid and also probably real and that I am just missing smaller changes that are hidden by the noise of my data, or are even my statistically significant changes suspect?

    Thanks,
    Anna

    Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
    by seqadmin


    Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

    Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
    by seqadmin


    Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
