I have more than 100 RNA-Seq samples (files) from different labs (i.e, different papers) for plant tissues. I want to compare them (for DEGs, PCA, tSNE, absolute expression, etc.). But for this, the data should be normalized. Data are from different labs, thus I want to take special care for the normalization which can remove any bias. I know the bias may depends on many factors. But here as a first step, I want to know what kind of normalization should be applied to the single count data (matrix)? I guess TMM is one of the best normalization technique in this scenario. Is there any other pipeline for this kind of task? and lastly, can I just compare the data with TPM values in doing PCA and tSNE?

Thanks for help!

Yes you can do PCA using TPM values and TMM has been widely used as normalization technique for transcriptome data. You can use DESeq2
