Hello, I have constructed the following dataset for analysis using DESeq2: class: DESeqDataSet dim: 57396 10 exptData(0): assays(1): counts rownames(57396): ENSG00000223972 ENSG00000227232 ... ENSG00000210195 ENSG00000210196 rowData metadata column names(0): colnames(10): 1 2 ... 10 11 colData names(1): condition > colData(ddsHTSeq) DataFrame with 10 rows and 1 column condition <factor> 1 na 2 na 3 Resistant 4 na 5 Resistant 6 Resistant 7 na 8 na 10 Sensitive 11 Sensitive I am interested in the differential expression between the drug resistant and sensitive samples ('na' are control samples). I've clustered the samples and plotted a PCA as described in the vignette. However, in each of these plots the samples do not cluster by their drug sensitivity but are distributed across the plot. I don't have any more information about the samples with which to model any potential covariates. I was wondering if there were any pointers as to how I could extract some useful meanings from these data please? As might be expected, when I try a DESeq on these data I get no significant p-values.
