# baseMean threshold

I have an RNA-seq dataset and I am using DEseq2 to find differentially expressed genes between the two groups. I used pre-filtering to remove any genes that have no counts or only one count across the samples. furthermore, I want to:

• remove genes in low counts by using a base mean threshold.

• remove genes that have low counts compared to the rest of the genes.

Question

Is there a common threshold used for the baseMean or a way to work out what this threshold should be?
