[BioC] edgeR: topTags

The second question, when giving the summary command,  the number after -1 is the number of down-regulated genes and that after 1 is the up-regulated ones.

The first question, when you export your top tags into tab delimited table, you can sort the table by logFC, the positive values of logFC corresponds to the up-regulated genes, while the negative values of logFC indicates the down-regulated genes.

Hope that it is helpful.

Subject: [BioC] edgeR: topTags

Dear the edgeR community,

Good day.

1.  Could someone please light me,  does the "topTags"  show also the
down-regulated genes/tags in the top genes list? If it is not, how could I
     the down-regulated genes/tags list?

2.  Using this command:  summary(de <- decideTestsDGE(lrt))
     is able to tell the total number of up-regulated and down-regulated
genes/tags of the test. I would like to learn how can I extract these up and
     down-regulated genes/tags list or I should look at the "topTags"
command instead?

Thank you very much for your time and help.

Best regards,
KJ Lim
