Hi,

I am using DESeq2 to analysis rna-seq data. When I plot PCA for all samples in two groups I can see a nice separation within two groups(500 samples vs 50 samples), However, when I am plotting PCAs for matched/paired samples (two groups of 50 samples), I could do not see that the samples are separated into two groups any more?

Thanks, 

Sami

You may try removing the subject effect using limma::removeBatchEffect from the transformed data and then replotting.
