I am trying to use DESEQ2 to estimate the correlation coefficient of gene expression levels with different phenotypes.

dds = DESeqDataSetFromMatrix(
  countData = round(count),
  colData = pheno1,
  design = ~ Age+Gender+GROUP)


ddm <- DESeq(dds)

my questions is how could I get the coefficient for Age, gender and group, especially, age is a continuous variable

Thank you

Great, I got it now.

One more question, in order to get coefficient for gender and group, I have to convert them to 0,1, instead of F,M, how to interpret the coefficient of gender then?

Thank you

I moved this to a comment.

If you print the results table for sex, it will tell you the LFC direction. It’s also determined by the factor levels. See the vignette section on factor levels.

You can get the coefficients one by one with results() and the "name" argument. Or you can get all the coefficients with the coef() approach described here:
