Hi all. I want to ask something about DESeq2 statistics. I've got the my DESeq2 results but there are so many datas with pvalue > 0.05, so it means the differential gene expression is not significant.

There are also datas that have NA in its Padj. The question I want to ask is, if the Padj is NA because either the controlmean/experimentalmean are 0, can I use pvalue instead to measure the significancy of the differential gene expression?

Appreciate all your time and answer, thank you beforehand!

See the vignette which describes why the padj can be NA, while the pvalue is not. See independentFiltering argument of ?results.

Yes, but my question was if the padj result is NA, is it okay if i use pvalue for the statistic?

In short, no these are not appropriate to consider, see the workflow for more discussion on why not.
