  • DESeq2 experimental design/analysis

    Nieve statistical question

    We have the following data:
    control: 3 biological replicates
    treatment 1: 2 biological replicates
    treatment 2: 2 biological replicates

    Using DESeq2 and running 3 separate comparisons we get:
    1. ctl vs treatment 1 ~ 160 genes up-regulated
    2. ctl vs treatment 2 ~ 660 genes up-regulated
    3. treatment1 vs treatment 3 ~ NO genes up-regulated

    So, if we compare data from 1 & 2 we get ~ 500 genes differentiially up-regulated between treatment 1 : treatment2, but none if we compare them directly (#3).

    I assume this means T1 & T2 distributions are nearly identical, and differ from the control.

    Correct?

    I don't know about "nearly identical", but they're less likely to be different than the control condition (note my weird wording, which allows for cases where the variance in the treatment groups is high whereas that in the control group is low...which can also lead to findings like this). BTW, you probably want to check down-regulated genes as

      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...
