in the limma user manual, page 41-43 it provides two ways of calculation of DEGs

Approach1

#Differentially expressed genes can be found by
> fit <- lmFit(eset, design)
> fit <- eBayes(fit)
> topTable(fit, coef="Grp1vsGrp2", adjust="BH")

Approach 2;

#Differentially expressed genes can be found by
> fit <- lmFit(eset, design)
> cont.matrix <- makeContrasts(Grp1vsGrp2=Grp1 - Grp2, levels=design)
> fit2 <- contrasts.fit(fit, cont.matrix)
> fit2 <- eBayes(fit2)
> topTable(fit2, adjust="BH")

But I get different output for these methods:
