I have run an RNAseq analysis and am stuck on what would be the most appropriate thing to report in results.
I first decided to report the results of IHW tested results from DESeq2, from reading the vignettes this output is suggested to be a better method than the default results output by DESeq2. Is this correct?
Secondly, I applied apeglm shrinkage to my dds object for plotting a MA plot, because from reading the vignettes this output is suggested to be a better shrinkage than the default shrinkage output by DESeq2.
However I am getting confused by which results to finally report.
I am hoping to sort my results by the most robust changes (significnace value) in my dataset as many of my genes have a LFC of >2 in all results.
Should I output apeglm results and report the associated s values? or should I use IHW results and report the associated adj.pvalues?
OR should I output apeglm results and report the associated adj.pvalues?
Which is the 'gold standard' or best course of action?
Fot the latter, svalues = FALSE, doesn't seem to be working for me to produce padj values when I run my dds object through lfcshrink()
