Hi there I have generated a counts table of samples I need to compare by differential expression analysis.
The layout of the counts table is as follows:
So here, for the differential expression analysis, I only want to compare for example the genes starting with "YL-". So in a new file I want the rows including the first row which is "Gene_id" and the sample names e.g. "Sample_A_r1" and then only the rows with genes starting with "YL-" in their names. This will allow me to only compare the changes between Sample_A alone versus when it was combined with Sample_B, or in the table Sample_AB.
If anyone can please give me an indication of how to do this in linux I would really appreciate it. I have seen other similar posts, involving
awk I am just not sure of exactly how to do this. I am still quite new to linux. Any help will be appreciated.
