I had the following error while running DEseq2 comparing groups of different sample size:

Error in checkForExperimentalReplicates(object, modelMatrix) :

The design matrix has the same number of samples and coefficients to fit, so estimation of dispersion is not possible. Treating samples as replicates was deprecated in v1.20 and no longer supported since v1.22.

dds = DESeqDataSetFromMatrix(countData = counts,colData = cli, design = ~ V2)

dds = DESeq(dds)

Here are my cli table and my count matrix

I just started using DEseq2, but I did run another comparison, 3 vs 3 samples, with exactly the same code and had no errors

You started looking for a real college literature lesson homework help online because of some extraordinary sophisticated assignment that is due soon and you have no clue about a way to approach to its completion. Let’s first be clear on one thing: you buy at Help with my homework and we give great homework help. College demands it. And you don’t have to be involved if you are uninclined to do so. You can give us the assignment, explain what you will, and leave us to complete the work. However, our methodology is set up so that you can reap enormous benefits from the process itself. From the day you complete the buying process, you will get to choose your professional writer, and e-mail communication begins immediately.

I can’t easily see your code or sample table above. The error is pretty literal: that design cannot be fit because there are no replicates: every group in the design has a single sample, and so DESeq2 stops and tells you the problem.

I have 4 replicates in one group and 5 replicates in another group

Take a look at the examples in the vignette and workflow. Or the man pages. You should not name the condition vector control1, control2, control3. That’s not how any of the differential packages label replicates of the control group. Just use “control”.

Thanks and sorry for asking such a silly question!
