Hi I would like to know what does signature column means in a differential gene expressed result??what do u interpret by its values TRUE or FALSE ?? So please help me out Thanks

  1. From where did you obtain your data?
  2. How did you process it?
  3. Describe your experimental setup.
  4. Which technology did you use (microarray?; RNA-seq?; fluidigm?; real-time qPCR?)
  5. Paste an example of your results.

i got the data from GEO, the study is based on understanding the differential expression of RNA transcripts and proteins. micro-array and mass spectrophotometry was used to analyze . I used DEGseq to find the Differential expressed genes but there is one columns(SIGNATURE) in the table which i was unable to understand . what is the significance of the signature values true and false? what do you interpret if the signature is true or the signature is false?


results:

'Signature' is an unfortunate choice of word. If it is TRUE, it means that the gene is statistically significant at the default p-value threshold of 0.001. The Signature column, therefore, just provides for an easy filter.
