  • 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.

          The Impact of AI in Genomic Medicine
          by seqadmin



          Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved from a futuristic vision to a mainstream technology, highlighted by the introduction of tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Gemini. In recent years, AI has become increasingly integrated into the field of genomics. This integration has enabled new scientific discoveries while simultaneously raising important ethical questions1. Interviews with two researchers at the center of this intersection provide insightful perspectives into...

          Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
          by seqadmin


          New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”
