I am having trouble understanding why my resultsNames are missing comparisons that I thought should be there, as well as if I should relevel for both factors in my analysis?

I have two treatments 1-Year of sample and 2-Timpoint of collection. I am conducting an LRT test.

What I want to know is, shouldn't there be a "Year_H2019_vs_H1999", "Timepoint_T24_vs_T48" , "YearH1999.TimepointT0", "YearH2019.TimepointT0", "YearH1995.TimepointT0", "YearH1995.TimepointT24", and a "YearH1995.TimepointT48", present in the results(Names)?

My second question is: I want to have comparisons based on timepoint 0, but do I also need to relevel on the "Year" factor?

Thanks for any guidance on these problems.

I am having trouble understanding why my resultsNames are missing comparisons that I thought should be there, as well as if I should relevel for both factors in my analysis?

For questions about statistical design and interpretation of results, I recommend consulting a local statistician or someone familiar with linear models in R. I have to reserve my time on the support site for software related questions.

I apologize, I thought this was a software question on releveling and missing comparisons. Maybe someone else could share a link that has a good example or documentation of a two factor analysis that includes releveling? I have been trying to find thorough documentation, but haven't been able to find a good example.

In R, one can specify a particular linear model using formula and this produces a set of coefficients: this is generic to all methods in Bioconductor and beyond. So anyone who knows how to construct and interpret the design and coefficients in R would be able to help you. I try to therefore reserve my time on the support site to specific questions about DESeq2 software. There are a lot of users online with general statistical consulting questions about how to analyze their datasets and interpret results, but I just don't have time to address all of those questions about experimental design here, while also maintaining and supporting software.
