Hi,

I am getting p-value as "NA" eventhough the log2FC is greater than 6 for the following three transcripts. Can somebody explain me if you have across this anytime?

"id","baseMean","baseMeanA","baseMeanB","foldChange","log2FoldChange","pval","padj"

This would make more sense if you were using DESeq2, since then these could be genes with apparent outliers. I don't recall there being any mechanism for this in DESeq.

Regardless, you should really be using DESeq2 anyway (it has a good number of improvements).

Im tried DESeq2 for the same data and this time it is the different set transcripts which are showing "NA" as their p-value

"baseMean","log2FoldChange","lfcSE","stat","pvalue","padj"

The 3 transcripts, where p-value was "NA" for DESeq are showing p-value as 0 with DESeq2

I'd go with the DESeq2 results. There are known reasons, described in the user manual, why it will sometimes yield NA p-values.

are you using DESeq or DESeq2?

I am using DESeq.
