To my knowledge,
there is no consensus cutoff value for the fold-change in transcriptomic data (correct me if this is wrong). However, one reviewer for a submitted manuscript asked that we provide references to support our cutoffs for significance selected. I wonder if there are "good" references that either spell out a "hard" cutoff values for fold-change or state clearly that there is no consensus cutoff value for the fold-change.
Any suggestion ? Thanks
