Default Start analysis from DESeq2-normalized read counts?

Hi all,

I know that DESeq2 relies on using raw read countsd as input. However, I have the following question:

What if the read counts were already normalized using DESeq2? Is there a way to start the analysis after this step?

A colleague did an initial DESeq2 run on our data, and supplied a table with the normalized read counts from DESEq. I do not have the raw counts, and was wondering if I could start from here and skip the normalization method that DESeq perfoms.

For DESeq2, you shouldn't use any kind of values where the library size has been divided out. The statistical methods use the properties of the sampling distribution of counts, as well as estimation of additional variation (dispersion), for inference.

The input matrix should be: the number of reads/fragments which can be uniquely assigned to a gene (aligning to any of the exons of a gene).
