[…] expressed lncrna transcripts, six up-regulated and two down-regulated genes were identified., we estimated the statistical power for detecting significantly degs using ‘rnaseqsamplesize’ [] and ‘ssizerna’ []. the genes with minimun read counts > 10 across all individuals (n = 11,076) genes was used. we also estimated the distributions of gene read count and dispersions using our rna-seq […]
