DEseq2 nested multi factor no replicates
Entering edit mode
Last seen 5 weeks ago

Hi, I have been reading the previous post about nested and multi factor analysis with DESeq2 , as well as, the vignettes dealing with nested and multi factor analysis. However, I am still getting the "model matrix is not full rank" error.

Here are my experimental design and code that I have been trying to use.

The experiment was done in spruce with 6 clones and 4 treatments (CI, CW, MI, and MW). As it was spruce, we only had two trees for all but one clone. Therefore, two treatments were performed in the same individual.

I think that the individual trees should be nested. I am interested in looking at the effect of treatment and the effect of clone on gene expression.

I have tried using "ind.n" then creating a model matrix, removing zeros, and feeding the matrix to full in DEseq, but this doesn't work. Any other suggestions?

Thanks! Melissa

Here is my coldata.

using supplied model matrix Error in checkFullRank(full) : the model matrix is not full rank, so the model cannot be fit as specified. One or more variables or interaction terms in the design formula are linear combinations of the others and must be removed.

Please read the vignette section 'Model matrix not full rank':

If you label "intact" and "wounded" as a variable group, you could use the strategy in the vignette, to estimate the "M" vs "C" treatment effect, and accounting for individual tree baselines. You can also compare the M vs C effect across intact and wounded (see vignette). But you can't compare across clones, because you are treating the tree as a nuisance term. I think you could possibly compare across clone using a different framework: limma's duplicateCorrelation.

Thanks for the suggestion!
