    started a topic EdgeR test for differential expression.

    EdgeR test for differential expression.

    I'm reading the Robinson and Smyth's 2008 paper: Small-sample estimation of negative binomial dispersion, with applications to SAGE data

    Wondering if anyone can clarify the final test being used to determine differential expression for me? The variant of fishers exact.

    As I'm reading it, from section 5.2 (and from the help(exactTest()), it seems that the adjusted counts (Za and Zb) for the two conditions are added together to form another NB distribution and then it tests where in the summed distribution, the counts for Za are? That seems ... overly simple.

    Is that right? Am I even looking in the right place for an explanation of how this works? Robinson et. al's 2010 edger note suggest this paper. And I can't see it clearly explained in the Zhou, Lindsay, Robinson 2014 paper either.

    Cheers
    Ben.

    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
