Hello, I'm using DEXseq to detect differential splicing between two conditions (3 replicates each) and following the guidelines in the vignettes I got a nice table of differentially spliced exons (from DEUresultTable). So far so good. Now, in differential gene expression you quantify the difference as log fold change between condition A and B. Likewise, I would like to quantify the size of the difference in splicing and the direction. Is this information available from DEXSeq? Looking at the graph produced by plotDEXSeq() with splicing= TRUE it seems to me that this information could come from the "fitted splicing" (like FC= log2(fittedSplicingB/fittedSplicingA)). However I can't find where the fitted splicing data is (I guess somewhere in the ExonCountSet?) By the way, I found this post https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/bioc-sig- sequencing/2011-August/002167.html asking a similar question and Wolfgang mentioned some improvements to the output that could have been addressed in later releses of DEXSeq. Many thanks!
