Isoform_exp.diff tests if the expression level of the isoforms is different, this might say there is a significant difference in isoform levels even if the ratio of the different isoforms is the same across treatments. Do I have this correct/clear enough?

Also, in both cases I am getting the majority of isoforms are coming out as a NOTEST. Could I be doing something wrong or do I just not have enough depth?

thanks in advance!
If the ratio is constant.. How can you say individual isoforms changes..?
