[…] to each predicted cds was calculated for the 12 data sets by htseq-count with the -m union option. differential expression analysis (normalization and statistical tests) was performed using the sartools with deseq2 software and a bonferroni p-value adjustment was used to correct for multiple testing. genes with an adjusted p-value <0.05 were considered as differentially expressed. […]

[…] non coding rna validated by rfam and cds were counted with htseq-count [] using the abims roscoff platform. a list of differentially expressed genes was generated using an r software package: sartools [], embedded deseq2 [] and edger [] (modified t-test adjusted, pvalues < 0.05). a comparison of the results obtained with either deseq2 or edger produced a more exhaustive list using […]
