Good evening, Please explain better what you want to do. No-one should want to create a volcano plot for no reason.

  • Are you a beginner in bioinformatics?
  • Is this a task or some assignment?
  • On which dataset do you wish to focus?

Other threads by you:

GSE34747 Platforms (1)
Samples (6)

GSM854486 MSC_Ctrl_rep1 GSM854487 MSC_Ctrl_rep2 GSM854488 MSC_Ctrl_rep3 GSM854489 MSC_Li_rep1 GSM854490 MSC_Li_rep2 GSM854491 MSC_Li_rep3 I want to find out the differential gene expression bt VolcanoPlot of these samples.

It depends on what kind of data you are using. For microarray data, I suggest limma package in R, and for RNA-Seq data I suggest DESeq2. Both of them can give you pvalues and fold changes for volcano plot.

If you go to the GEO page for GSE34747, you'll see an "Analyze with GEO2R" button:

GEO2R will allow you to analyze any microarray data in GEO right in the browser. You just have to specify which samples you want to compare. There is a nice tutorial here:
