Pairwise differential expression analysis with Blast2GO 

The Pairwise Differential Expression Analysis tool is designed to perform differential expression analysis of count data arising from an RNA-seq experiment. The application, which is based on the software package "edgeR", allows the identification of differentially expressed genes between two experimental conditions by applying quantitative statistical methods. 

This video shows the performance of a pairwise differential expression analysis in which the expression of two cell types obtained from mice at different development stages was compared.
