Hello, I have a question regarding interpreting DESeq2 results regarding baseMean and log2FoldChange. I run DESeq() to perform differential expression analysis between group 1 and 2, and got the results like following, condition is c("1", "2").
I have a difficulty interpreting these, as it seems that baseMean represents mean of all participants (both group 1 and 2). I thought that "baseMean represents mean of group 1 (base level), and log2FoldChange indicate the change of group2 from group1." Is this interpretation correct?
If correct, How should I interpret this baseMean? Is it just showing all the participants mean for reference? I don't think the result is showing that "log2FoldChange of group 2 from all the group baseMean". I hope I clarified my question well...
Thanks in advance.
