Exercise 1: statistical tests

The file cancer.csv contains transcription information for 6272 human genes over 6 individuals; 3 are normal samples (N1, N2, N3), and 3 are cancer samples (C1, C2, C3), suffering from the same cancer. All samples are independent.The goal is to find which genes are significantly differently expressed between the 2 groups.

Which test could you potentially use in order to answer this question and which one would you use ?

Report the 10 genes that look most interesting in terms of differential expression.
