Hello everyone.

I am doing differential expression analysis for a TCGA data set. When i checked PCA separation, i got something like this, a matter i have seen in GSEA as well. Two tumor samples are not separated from the normal.

Do you think i should remove these two tumor samples completely?

Thanks in advance.

This isn't a DESeq2 question per say.

I wouldn't remove the samples but I would instead try to use some other program to estimate the purity of those samples.

Thanks Michael,

I cannot do that since i cannot process the raw files due to lack of computational power. I am relying on raw counts from TCGA extracted by TCGABiolinks.

Maybe you could reach out to the data generators to ask about the samples.
