[…] 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 […]

[…] package) was used to conduct de analyses. limma utilizes a standard variance moderated across all genes using a bayesian model and produces p-values with greater degrees of freedom (55). the voom module was used to transform the data based on observational level weights derived from the mean-variance relationship prior to statistical modeling (56) (supplementary figure s2). experimental […]

[…] between differential co-expression and differential expression, we compared the two measures for metabolic genes in brca and kirc (fig 3). we assessed differential expression using the limma voom package [37]. we found that the magnitude of differential expression (as quantified by the log2 ratio of tumor to normal expression) was weakly associated with the frequency of differential […]
