I have RNAseq data for human subjects and plan to do a differential gene expression analysis using DESeq2. The covariates I plan to use include sex, age, genotypic principal components, and substance use. However, I have missing data for principal components and substance use and would like to know how to code these missing data in the SampleTable. Can I put "." for missing data or would I have to take out the subjects with missing data? Thanks.
If you have a question, start a new thread. Simply piggy-backing on some four year old thread that you think is similar enough isn't the way to go. In addition, don't use the Add Answer button to ask questions! That button is literally wrapped in instructions saying that you should only use it to answer a question, so why would you use it to ask another question?
I see, thanks for pointing these out. I've now started a new post asking the question.
