Hi everyone,

I have a file containing psi values for samples and I wanted to compare the differential splicing between two groups of my datasets, adjusting for covariates. Can I just give the dataset of the splicing events to limma? Is there a statistic method especially designed for that kind of data that takes into account covariates? Thanks

The diffSplice() function in R analyses differential splicing between groups adjusting for covariates. The function does an alternative splicing analysis from scratch using the exon or intron level counts.

diffSplice() runs on a linear model object created by lmFit() and can adjust for any covariates included in the model fit.

I am not sure what you mean "give the dataset of the splicing events to limma", but limma is designed to do its own analysis, not post process a splicing analysis from somewhere else.

Thanks! 

I guess I cannot use diffSplice on my matrix with PSI values, correct?

I don't really follow what you're asking so I can't say whether it's correct or not. What do you mean by a matrix of psi values and what exactly to you hope to learn from them? You can always read the documentation for diffSplice to see what type of data it accepts.
