Possible to directly compare RNA-Seq and DGE data?

Hello,

I have sequencing data from RNA-Seq and DGE (Digital Gene Expression) for the following conditions:

RNA-Seq: Condition A + Condition B

DGE: Condition B + Condition C

Would it be possible to compare Condition A against Condition C from different methods? These experiments were done at different times so we no longer have the samples available to run them on the same platform.

Thanks!

To add to Sean Davis : No, library prep/quantification methods will seriously bias the result. You would be doing a technical comparison of the method RNA-seq with the method DGE, and not the underlying biological comparison of condition A vs condition C.

Unfortunately, probably not.
