Clinical Catch-Up: December 20-24 | BioSpace

It was a relatively quiet week in clinical trial news heading into the holidays. Here’s a look. COVID-19-Related Statera Biopharma dosed the first patient in its study of STAT-205 to mitigate COVID-19 progression. The drug is an immune modulator designed to decrease elevated inflammatory responses associated with cytokine production and modulate the…

DESeq2 analysis example, opinions?

Hello everyone, Purpose of the analysis: In there a difference between TOV21G-PacR and TOV21G-cont, and between the PacR and cont? My question is if this analysis makes sense for you? I am analyzing this particular gene set (GSE172016). Within the data there are two cell lines (“OVCAR3” and “TOV21G”) and…

spots not filling the whole tissue image

Issue with Seurat SpatialPlot: spots not filling the whole tissue image 0 In Seurat, SpatialPlot generates a plot with an enlarged/expanded image of tissue section as compared to the original spot image. This seems to happen on the relatively small image with a number of spots around 500. I ‘d…

Converting an S4 object into a dataframe in R

I have an S4 object named ‘res’ which I got while using an R package called RDAVIDWebService. I can’t seem to find a way to convert this object into a dataframe in R. I tried using the function ‘as.data.frame(res)’ but it throws this error: > as.data.frame(res) Error in as.data.frame.default(res) :…
