  • Check that replicates are good

    Hi,
    I'm new to RNA-seq analysis. I have biological duplicates of 4 different conditions. I want to check how good the replicates are for each condition. I have got them mapped to the genome and have run cuffdiff on the files, but I was wondering what comparisons people do/tools people use to check their replicates?
    Thanks

    Hi- A plot of principal components (PCA plot) and/or multidimensional scaling (MDS plot) and/or a dendrogram are usually quite helpful in spotting sample outliers and to check that the replicates cluster together. Once you have a matrix of genes and samples they are quite easy to generate in e.g. R. See also the vignettes in edgeR and DESeq (R/bioconductor packages).

      You can also just do a scatter plot, for example in R, of Rep1 vs Rep2. This can be a bit easier to understand when communicating your results to other researchers.

        Lots of people also do grid plots of Pearson/Spearman correlation, sometimes with a hierarchically clustered dendrogram on the axes. Also easy to do in R with the cor() function once you have a matrix of genes by samples.

          Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
          by seqadmin




          The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

          Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
          by seqadmin


          In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
