Dear all,

After running DESeq2 program successfully I found out that I had to detect and remove outliers from my htseq count datasets before running DESeq2. However, I am a little confused about how to perform this task.

Can u advise me the most straightforward way to do this?

Thank u in advance

Why do you think you need to remove outliers? I tend to remove the genes that doesnt have more than 5 counts on average across all samples but nothing more.

Thank u so much. Yes, I've already removed genes with lower than 10 reads

Why 10? Why not any other?

There is no need to remove out layers but it's better to remove the technical artifacts(noise incorporated by the sequencer). Genes/transcripts having read count within 0-10 rage is generally considered as artifacts(if the expression pattern is inconstant throughout all the samples). For more details check the following thread.
