Hello Biostars, Can anyone tell me how to prepare input data set for GSEA after Differential Gene Expression Analysis by DESeq2? How will I rank the genes? Should I rank based on log2FC or Adjusted P value? Is there any way to generate a GSEA ready data directly from DESeq2?. I was using topGo for gene ontology enrichment analysis before and recently came across GSEA. Which one is better GO enrichment analysis or GSEA? Even after going through the papers I couldn't find a significant difference between above two.

Thank you

Hi Sreeraj

Genes can be ranked based on fold change and P value and that can be used in GSEA package.

you can use this R code for this purpose.

x <- read.table("DE_genes.txt",sep = "\t",header = T)
x$fcsign <- sign(x$log2.fold_change.)
x$metric= x$logP/x$fcsign
y<-x[,c("Gene", "metric")]

in this case, what parameter should we input into GSEA?

Here's a link to an answer I wrote a few years ago for using the gene set testing package goseq following DESeq2:

I'm not sure what kind of input GSEA takes. I also like the methods behind ROAST and CAMERA from the limma package, but I haven't yet worked on integrating with those methods. For those two, you would need to run a limma analysis upstream.

Hey I noticed in the newest DESeq2 version, the default setting of fold change is not shrunken fold change, may I ask why? i thought the shrunken fold change gives you higher confidence.
