Comment: C: Nested Random Effect in LIMMA: Is It Possible?
... What are the nested random effects? It looks like you only have one random effect (lineage) in your design. ...

Comment: C: Making sense out of makeContrasts and using coefficents for contrasts
... I'll assume you meant `T5.LD.FW` instead of `T5.SP`. If so, you are testing the T6 difference against the mean of the T5 and T4 differences. That's not quite the same as what you're after. In any case, I find that these "difference of differences" contrasts are difficult to interpret without the con ...

Answer: A: Random Effect in DESeq2
... To my knowledge, none of the negative binomial GLM-based packages (e.g. edgeR & DESeq2) support models with random effects. Limma is the only package I know of that does support RNA-seq analysis with random effects. It supports a model with any number of fixed effects and one factor as a random ...

Comment: C: Making sense out of makeContrasts and using coefficents for contrasts
... What hypothesis are you attempting to test with this contrast? We can't tell you if your contrast is testing what you want to test unless you say what you want to test. In any case, the contrast you have written appears to be subtracting two terms from one term, which usually yields a nonsense con ...

Answer: A: edgeR /DESeq2 normalization for differential expression in RNA-seq blood samples
... Aaron's answer adequately covers the theoretical reasons that the normalizations used in edgeR and DESeq2 are appropriate for data with variations in globin content, so I will just add that empirically, I have actually *used* edgeR on such a data set. Specifically, we were testing a custom globin bl ...

Comment: C: Appropriate design formula for DESeq2 from principles
... This isn't an answer to your main question, but for an in-depth discussion of how design matrices are constructed from factors, you should have a read through the [vignette for the codingMatrices package](https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/codingMatrices/vignettes/codingMatrices.pdf). You gener ...

Comment: C: Order of contrasts.fit call (before or after eBayes)
... You can read the code of the functions to find out exactly what they are doing. I did that a while ago but I don't recall the exact details. I just remember that the rule I came up with was "always run `eBayes` on every fit", and I haven't had any trouble since. ...

Comment: C: Order of contrasts.fit call (before or after eBayes)
... It's only necessary to call `eBayes` if you need the statistics that it calculates. This will almost always be the case for the contrast fit (since you want to call `topTable` on it), but sometimes you also want it for the regular fit as well. It normally only takes a second or two to run it, so I j ...

Answer: A: Order of contrasts.fit call (before or after eBayes)
... I recommend saving the result of `contrasts.fit` as a separate object, so that you still have access to the original `lmFit` result as well. They both have their uses, as you have noted. Run `eBayes` on both of them. My typical workflow looks something like this: ``` fit <- lmFit(mat_data, desig ...

Answer: A: LIMMA dupcor() function time issue.
... Looking at the code of duplicateCorrelation, the main time sink is the loop that runs mixedModel2Fit on each row of the input. So the time required should indeed be a linear function of the number of rows. However, the linear trend might break down if you are bumping up against hardware limits. The ...
