Hello,

I'm using edgeR for analysis of may data and I'm not sure what total count filter value cutoff value I should use, My reads are paired 50bP reads and total reads per sample is about 80,000,000. I tried cutoff values of 5,10,15,30,50 and 100 and I only saw differences between 50 and 100 but still looking for logical reason to choose the cutoff value.

Appreciate your help,
Mahnaz

Just us the genefilter package and it'll allow you to determine the optimal threshold. I recommend reading the paper describing it as well as it gives the underlying justification.
