i have each rna-seq data of 2 experiment samples.

After mapping through tophat, i tried to compare gene expression difference.

As for respective samples, cufflinks get FPKM of genes to me.

simultaneously, i compared the two samples FPKM by using cuffdiff.


But the FPKM from cufflinks and cuffdiff are not same, 

so i wondering which i should use for the purpose of comparing gene expression

difference between two samples.

Please help me ...Thanks!!

Yes, it's because the "Library Normalization Methods" used by default for each one. Meanwhile cufflinks use classic-fpkm normalization, the cuffdiff default is geometric. Please check the section "Library Normalization Methods" in the link below. To change the method when you run cuffdiff, type "--library-norm-method classic-fpkm" in options.
