Sorry, I cannot let this stand like this, as it might be misunderstood to mean that accounting for multiple hypothesis testing is optional in RNA-Seq data analysis. Of course, you always need to account for multiple hypothesis testing when you test many hypothesis (here: many genes).

On the flip side, you could get a fabulous FDR, by simply not sequencing very much.
Um, no, you don't. Why should you?
