Table 2 Number of differentially expressed genes detected based on number of biological replicates

From: Combining laser-assisted microdissection (LAM) and RNA-seq allows to perform a comprehensive transcriptomic analysis of epidermal cells of Arabidopsis embryo

  Number of repeats
2 3 4
Log ratio for DE genes 0.65 0.75 0.65
Number of DE genes 752 803 870
  1. Top—comparison of gene expression levels needed (log ratio) to validate a differential expression (DE) according to number of repeats with 0.1 ng total microdissected input RNA. Bottom—number of genes differentially expressed according to organs and repeats
