Expression Matrix structure for WGCNA

Hello everyone,

I am interested in applying co-expression network analysis to bulk rnaseq data downloaded from ncbi. The problem is I am quite unsure about the structure of the expression matrix used as input for the WGCNA package. I know that the rows correspond to genes and the columns are samples/traits. But what kind of samples can I (or should I) put in the same matrix? Does it make sense for example for all the columns to correspond to the same species under the same type of stress? Should I also put samples where the species is not under any type of stress?

The documentation goes over this but generally if there is a large effect size between the two conditions, and you have 15+ samples in each condition, you should process them separately at first. Later on in the analysis you can start doing comparisons between the networks.
