Expression estimation

This introduces how to summarise short read alignments by the annotation of interest to obtain a count-table; i.e. the structure necessary to most downstream expression based analyses. Here, the focus is put on gene-expression, but the aspects of transcript-expression are briefly addressed.

Populus tremula shows no evidence of sexual dimorphism

**Background:** Although the majority of plant species are co-sexual, being either monoecious or hermaphroditic, a significant number are dioecious, having separate male and female individuals. Evolutionary theory suggests that males and females may develop sexually dimorphic phenotypic and...

Populus tremula shows no evidence of sexual dimorphism https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/populus-tremula-shows-no-evidence-of-sexual-dimorphism **Background:** Although the majority of plant species are co-sexual, being either monoecious or hermaphroditic, a significant number are dioecious, having separate male and female individuals. Evolutionary theory suggests that males and females may develop sexually dimorphic phenotypic and biochemical traits concordant with each sex having different optimal strategies of resource investment to maximise reproductive success and fitness. The establishment of such sexual dimorphism would result in changes in gene expression patterns in non-floral organs.

Differential expression analysis on the Robinson, Delhomme et al. dataset. https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/differential-expression-analysis-on-the-robinson-delhomme-et-al-dataset A differential expression analysis conducted on the **[Robinson, Delhomme et al., dataset](https://microasp.upsc.se/ngs_trainers/Materials/blob/master/Datasets/Robinson-Delhomme-Populus-tremula-shows-no-evidence-of-sexual-dimorphism.md)**. The dataset has 17 samples and 2 important meta-data: the sample sex and year of collection. The goal is to test whether genes are involved in different processes based on the sex of the tree; _i.e._ is there a sexual dimorphism in _Populus tremula_ trees. It has indeed been hypothesized that male tree should be taller so as to spread their pollen further, whereas female would be more resistant to pests and diseases. The existing literature is contradictory, however it resulted from studies where plants were grown in controlled environment. In the present dataset, plant samples were collected in the wild, at a 2 years interval. The latter is a very important factor in the analysis as the 'year effect' is a strong confounding factor that hides the 'sex effect'. The present tutorial, hence, introduces a differential-expression analysis, but goes further by adressing confounding factors and how to _block_ them in an analysis. It is a good dataset to remind trainees that they should always be critical towards the conclusion they draw from their data.
