Hi,

I have a question about the GLM options of edgeR, I have a set-up where individuals were subjected to different condition (Continuous) and the samples are of two type. I aim to look at the interaction of those two term. However the design from the manual seem odd to me (however I am relatively new to these statistical analysis) :

(Intercept) Condition Type1 Condition:Type1

1 1 1 1 1

...

6 1 1 1 1

7 1 2 1 2

...

12 1 2 1 2

13 1 3 1 3

..

18 1 3 1 3

19 1 1 0 **0**

...

24 1 1 0 **0**

25 1 2 0 **0**

...

30 1 2 0 **0**

31 1 3 0 **0**

..

36 1 3 0 **0**

```
Type<- factor(c(rep("Type1",12),rep("Type2",12)))
Condition<- (c(rep(1,4),rep(2,4),rep(3,4),rep(1,4),rep(2,4),rep(3,4)))
design <- model.matrix(~ Condition*Type, data=count)
lrt <- glmQLFTest(fit, coef = 4)
```

The last column strikes me as odd since the type one does not have a factor indicating there condition. Can someone help me interpret this model and what that last column test ?

My initial thinking was an interaction was that the type would influence how the condition affect the transcriptomic data (in my case). However that last column make me think the last one might test the reaction for one type but not the other...
