DEGseq in pipelines

PMCID: 5758489
PMID: 29313259
DOI: 10.1186/s13568-017-0529-4

[…] ne expression levels were used for direct comparison among samples. expression values were standardized across the dataset to enable the data from different genes to be combined., using the r package degseq, degs were identified with a random sampling model on the basis of the read count for each gene at different developmental stages. false discovery rate ≤ 0.05 and absolute value of |log2ratio|  […]

[…] sample. rpkm can eliminate the effect of sequencing depth and gene length on gene expression levels, which facilitates the comparison of the number of transcript levels generated between samples. degseq (v1.18.0) was used to identify differentially expressed genes (degs) between the viruliferous and nonviruliferous guts. genes with q ≤ 0.05 (adjusted p-value) and log2 ratio ≥ 1 […]

PMID: 29357938
DOI: 10.1186/s12958-017-0319-5

[…] read counts of each gene were counted by htseq (v0.6.0) [], and the reads per kilobase of one gene per million reads (rpkm) were calculated to estimate the expression level of genes in each sample. degseq (v1.18.0) [] was used to analyze differentially expressed genes (degs) with parameters of fdr < 0.05 and |log2fc| ≥ 1., the mirna and mrna expression profiles were analyzed by magia2 […]
