Hello,

I am new in R. I want to identify genes differentially expressed by using GLM. I used the function model.matrix to get the design matrix and then wanted to estimate the dispersion using the function estimateDisp ( Actually it was my professor's solution). I didn't understand what does estimateDisp do exactly? Thank you for your answer

• The dispersion estimation section of the workflow.

If you still don't get it, you should probably discuss your difficulties with your professor (it's their job, after all) before asking random strangers on the internet.

Thank you.
