Dear forum, whoever knows this please tell me!!!!! Given two fpkm . e.g. fpkm 1=2922828 and fpkm 2=0, why cuffdiff does not calculate differential expression. those genes are listed in cuffdiff as not significant and the log2 fold change is infinite , either negative or do i consider them when i want to pull out the genes that are differentially expressed between treated and untreated samples? how do i interpret these data? thanks, ib

ib, Look at the status column. I suspect that for this example you given the status is HiData. Cuffdiff considers the expression are very high and no statistic testing would have been done for the gene. fpkm 2=0 could be misleading, as it may not be actually 0. I have encountered in a data set where several genes are expected to be highly expressed in all samples, but one of the fpkm values were all given as 0. Hope this helps.
