In the manual link I sent, it goes like that:

Wald tests for the log2 fold changes at individual time points can be investigated using the test argument to results:

res30 <- results(ddsTC, name="strainmut.minute30", test="Wald")

which seems to be consistent with what you say "With a Wald test, you can test individual coefficient".
However, I remain with my questions because I cannot really see what a Wald Test and LRT test do.

For the moment, I will just apply an LRT test and I'll try to read some things about Wald and LRT tests.

Thank you Devon
