Hey there,

I am having an issue with phyloseq to deseq. I have looked at the vignette and the other examples to this but I still cant figure it out.

I am trying to look at the interaction between two factors. The two factors are named Group and RFI. The dataset is listed below. I tried the phyloseq to deseq code which is below.

diagdds = phyloseqtodeseq2(kostic, ~ RFI + Group + RFI*Group)

This seems to work fine for the individual factors, but is wrong for the interaction I think. This is the output. I want the interaction to be run between RFI*Group but it seems to be taking a subset (LRFI & B) rather than the complete dataset.

resultsNames(diagdds) [1] "Intercept" "RFILRFIvsHRFI" "GroupBvsA" "RFILRFI.GroupB"

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is how R names interaction terms. If we have covariates X and Y, the interaction means there is an additional term when X=1 and Y=1. So R calls the interaction term X1.Y1. You can see this in the examples in ?results and in the vignette section on interactions.

Hi Micheal,

That's fantastic, that really clears it up.

Kind regards,
