I have a bit of complicated situation here that I try to explain best. I am doing
goseq on my list of DEGs and my organism is S. pombe. I prepare the list of GO-terms for
gene2cat arguement from this list. What I get in result has this column
numInCat which I think are the total number of genes that share the same GO in my
list. However for some genes I had to go through the
list and to my surprise I found that some of them occur more than what I got in
GO:0009228 that in my results it has a
6 but it occurs
8 times in my list. Is there any explanation for that? Please let me know if I am not clear.
Here is a screenshot of my goseq results.
