Hi,

I'm working with DESeq2 DE results of microRNA expression (which I have not myself performed). I want to identify both differentially expressed miRNA and significantly stably expresssed miRNA. The DE miRNAs are obviously the miRNA with p<0.05. How can I identify stably expressed miRNAs from the DESeq2 DE resaults? Is there any specific p-value threshold I can use (e.g all miRNA with baseMean over 10 and a p-value over 0.5 can be viewed as significantly stably expressed)?

Just to clearify, I'm not looking for stably expressed miRNAs to normalize the data, but rather to identify which miRNAs are DE, which miRNA are significantly stably expressed and which are neither.

Thanks!

A follow-up question: Is there any key to find what threshold you should use, or do you generally recomend a treshold -value of abs(0.3)?

And in the R-script it's first written

But the "theta" is never used again, rather "thr" is used in the Z-tests. Is this a typo? Is "thr" really "theta"?
