    Type ?removeBatchEffect to read the documentation page. The documentation page explains that it is used to make unsupervised plots rather than for differential expression analyses.

    This is the way that removeBatchEffect has always been treated. It has not been removed from any documentation.

    design <- model.matrix(~Stage+Set)

    Here Set is the batch factor taking values "Set1" and "Set2" and Stage is the experimental factor taking values "Normal", "Stage1", "Stage2" and "Stage3".

    This is very standard type of analysis. There is no need for any external batch correction such as Combat.
    I have been using limma for a while now, but I am also a bit unsure about the syntax of the model.matrix command when it comes to batch effects, random effects, paired design, etc.

    Thank you for talking the time to answer my question.

    Hi Gordon- Thanks for your reply.
    I am a beginner in this. I know how to use DESeq2 to analyze RNASeq data from tables generated by summarizeOverlaps function. I was wondering how would your suggestion be implemented in this.

    Hi -
    Were you able to find a solution to this problem?

    Combining RNA-seq datasets

    I searched a lot of threads here and elsewhere without finding anything exactly like this.

    I have two RNA-seq datasets from different dates and different platforms. Split between them are 4 groups (normal and 3 stages of cancer). This is the distribution:

    Set 1
    1x normal
    2x stage 1
    3x stage 2
    7x stage 3

    Set 2
    2x normal
    2x stage 1
    2x stage 2
    2x stage 3

    We want to combine the datasets and make comparisons between the groups for differential expression. So far, I've tried:

    -Combine all FPKM values into 1 table
    -Run ComBat on the table, specifying dataset as batch and stage as a covariate
    -Skipped voom() since they are not raw counts and log2 converted the ComBat output for limma.
    -Run lmFit, contrasts.fit, and eBayes from limma on the converted output.

    My questions/confusion is over:

    1. Should I be using FPKM values or the raw counts for this, given the two datasets and need for batch removal?

    2. What is the best way to run limma on the ComBat output without conversion through voom()?

    3. Are there any other glaring problems with this approach?

    Thanks!

    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.”

    A major leap in the field has
