I have downloaded metabric data from cbioportal. The folder contains files as follows:

1. data_expression_median.txt
2. data_mRNA_median_all_sample_Zscores.txt
3. data_mRNA_median_Zscores.txt

Which file should I consider for differential expression (DE) analysis. Since Deseq2 and EdgeR requires input as raw_counts, the above files are not useful to perform DE analysis.

Please suggest me the possible methods to perform DE analysis on this dataset.

These are all the normalized counts and you can only run DESeq/EdgeR on the raw count.

Usually, I perform tests like Wilcoxon rank-sum test and consider median expression to calculate the fold change between two groups. It might not be a good way but I apply a really stringent p-value and fold change cut-off to consider the differentially regulated genes.
