Dear all,

It is my first time to work with WGCNA to investigate and compare co-expression networks of two organisms. 

I want to use a cutoff to select genes with higher module-membership values. When I choose 0.8 or 0.7 as cutoff, I can only find very few biological meaningful genes in each module, but when I choose 0.6 the results are more satisfactory.

My question is: is there any criteria or limit for selecting module membership values?

is 0.6 very low cutoff for module membership values?

I will appreciate any advice

What "cuttoff" are you talking about? do you mean he "kWithin" value returned by the intramodularConnectivity function?
