I am dealing with a very special problem:
I have to perform
DESeq on the count data that belong to a single gene (only ONE gene, i.e. the count data has one row & 100 columns). The dispersion value is already available for the gene. (Actually, the dispersions were calculated by
DESeq over a master count data with 19k genes )
How can I use
DESeq on this special count data?! I have to somehow feed the
DESeq with the already-known dispersion value, because
DESeq cannot calculate dispersion when there's only one gene in the count data.
