Hello everyone I have performed differential expression analysis on human dataset (GPL14550 Agilent-028004 SurePrint G3 Human GE 8x60K Microarray (Probe Name Version)). I have 12 samples of Th1 and Th2 sample type. At the end I visualized the top genes using volcano plot and it came out weird as shown in image. Please help me to figure it out. Volcano plot

It probably means that you have only adjusted p-values very close to 1, so no differential expression. What is the output of a summary() when you run it on the adjusted p-value column of the results?

This is the output of summary(tab$adj.P.Val)

Min. 0.994 1st Qu. 0.9994 Median 0.9994 Mean 0.9994 3rd Qu. 0.9994 Max. 0.9994

There you go, no differential genes. The study could be underpowered or there are no DEGs, or batch effects make dispersion large.
