Dear all, I am comparing two time points (6 time points) data under different conditions. I want to look for genes that show different pattern under different conditions. I constructed contrasts as in the user's guide (diff=cond1-cond2 at all pairs of time points) and generated MArrayLM object okay. My questions come with decideTests with "nestedF". 1. how is the classification done exactly?? I found a much smaller set of genes using decideTests(nestedF, p=0.01) versus p.adjust(fit$F.p.value)<0.01 2. The TestResults matrix doesnt really make sense. for example, places where the matrix shows 1 as upregulation, dont necessarily have positive M value or doesnt show a p.value < 0.01?? What do I miss here?? really confused... 3. p.value and adjust.method parameter in the decideTests are applied to F stat or to the individual p value at each gene at each contrasts. I hope I made the questions clear. Need help desperately, since there's not much document on this. Other suggestions for this type of analysis are also welcome. Thank you.
