Hi,

I am interested in comparing the expression of genes within the same sample and ranked them from the most expressed to the least expressed. I cannot use counts nor normalized counts because they do not take into account the gene lengths. Which measure would you suggest I use? Does DESeq2 provides a function to transform raw counts into such format?

You can use the cqn normalization that takes into account the gene length.

You can transform your raw counts to FPKM or TPM (recommend) for such within-sample comparsion, as these two normalization both takes gene length into consideration.
