I am trying to figure out if there is a way to modify the design formula such that countData are used as the "effect" / explanatory variable, and another outcome is used as the dependent variable, while adjusting for covariates. So, I'm trying to switch:
countData ~ covariate1 + covariate2 + outcome
outcome ~ covariate1 + covariate2 + countData
Is this an option? Or should this kind of question represent something you could still ask about using the first formula listed?
Thank you for your time.
