I want to compare 7 RNA-seq datasets from patients with pancreatic cancer with 7 samples of normal pancreatic tissue.
The cancer samples and the controls, however, are not from the same patients.
I would like to be sure my results will be trustful, so I'm concerned about batch effect.
How can I identify batch effect in my analysis and how can I correct it?
I want to perform gene co-expression analysis.
thank you very much,
