  • How did the edgeR authors compute Figure 2 (genewise deviance statistics?)

    **UPDATE**
    I've migrated (aka copied) this question over to the biostars forum: https://www.biostars.org/p/244455/. Please look there for further discussion.

    McCarthy, D.J., Chen, Y., and Smyth, G.K. (2012). Differential expression analysis of multifactor RNA-Seq experiments with respect to biological variation. Nucleic Acids Res 40, 4288–4297.

    In Figure 2 of this paper, the authors show that estimating dispersion on a per-gene basis is more compatible with their data. Am I allowed to attach it here as an image? If so, I gladly will do!

    I think understand broadly what is being demonstrated here (please correct me if I'm mistaken): When we estimate dispersions, that is an implicit model of the ratio of the mean to the standard deviation of each gene. Here, the authors are showing, with QQ plots, that the per-gene model describes the observed ratio better than a common dispersion value. Each dot in the plot corresponds to a gene.

    I'd like to generate this figure for my own data, but I don't understand how to compute the two vectors required. I'm guessing that one might be the log likelihood after fitting the GLM?

    Thanks for any light you can shed (code also gratefully appreciated, but no obligation)

    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
