Hi every body,

I want to analyze the results of Cuffdiff.

Cuffdiff has detected 149 significant differential expressed genes.

However, some genes have FPKM=0 (no read has been mapped) or very small FPKM in one condition.

My question is, should I consider those with FPKM=0 or very small FPKM?

Is it biologically possible that one genes does not expressed in one condition and over expressed in another condition?

I am looking forward your comments

Dear Nazanin, Hi.

There are some scripts for Filtering "Transcripts Based on Expression Values".

About "Is it biologically possible . . . " in the RNA-seq experiments, I guess the answer could be yes according to case/control condition, but FPKM=0 may has another reason
