[…] in cufflinks46, and filtering for long non-coding genes and pairwise differential expression analysis performed in cuffdiff46. data from female mice were analyzed as per hodes et al. 5 whereby the voom47 and limma48 packages were utilized to generate differential expression signatures. for both sexes, differential expression comparisons were generated to compare the effects of esr1 […]

[…] per million in at least two of the samples, were removed. quantile normalization (76) was applied, followed by log2 transformation of the counts per million and mean-variance adjustment using the voom program (77)., pca and pearson correlation-based heat maps created using the base r princomp and gplots heatmap.2 functions, respectively, were used to determine the similarity between samples […]

[…] to the human genome (grch38) using star aligner47. the number of mapped read-pairs were counted using cufflinks based on the gencode v23 annotation48. the raw read counts were transformed using voom49, 50, tmm-normalized51 and qc-analysed using the arrayqualitymetrics package in bioconductor52. samples were scored based on 3 parameters: maplot, boxplot, heatmap. a sample was classified […]

[…] continuous scale using this mean and variance relationship. since plda1 and nblda are count-based classifiers, the transformations are not applied for these classifiers. voomdda classifiers use the voom method inside the algorithm for transformation. a power transformation is applied for plda2 classifier. the rlog transformation is performed for other classifiers, due to its capability […]

[…] ‘classic’ as the enrichment statistic. for nsd1 wild-type scchn tumors, to evaluate whether nsd1 gene expression was associated with survival differences in laryngeal or oral cancer cases, we used voom-normalized45 rsem (rna-seq by expectation maximization) expression data. nsd1 expression was trichotomized into low (<or = 15% quantile), intermediate (>15% and <85% quantile), or high […]
