Hi, Biostars! Can anyone tell me how to validate the RNA-Seq Differential gene expression data using qPCR? How many genes should I select for qPCR validation? Is there any criteria for selecting the differentially expressed genes for qPCR validation? and finally what is the best method to visualize/represent the correlation between RNA-Seq and qPCR data?

Thank you all!!

Hey! It's highly recommendable to validate at least 20 genes. I'd suggest to choose the ones interesting for the topic you are addressing in your study and ones completely random, or for which you observed an interesting behaviour. The method is a simple Pearson correlation between the two groups: 1: RNA-Seq data and 2: qPCR data. If you got a Pearson correlation value of min 0.7 consider your validation already quite good! Good luck!

Hi lessismore, Thank you for your answer. Is there any standard guideline for valiadting the RNASeq data using qPCR?

The wise way is to have a look to the latest papers in your topic and to the related journal requirements. Then you can figure out what do you precisely need for your purpose
