Hello, I just need someone to clarify whether the logFC column in the toptags dataframe is log base 2 or log base 10. I was unable to see this information in the manuals. Thank you very much. best wishes, Chris [[alternative HTML version deleted]]

Looking in the code for glmLRT, I see this line: logFC <- drop((glmfit$coefficients %*% contrast)/log(2)) Which looks like the formula for changing the logarithm base from e to 2. So I believe logFC is reported in base 2.

Or else look at the help page for glmLRT, which says: "The data frame table contains the following columns: logFC: log2-fold change of expression between conditions being tested." In edgeR, all fold changes are stored internally in natural log, meaning that fit$coefficient valuas are natural log, but all fold changes that are presented in output tables or stored in fit$table components are log2.
