I have tried MaAsLin to find association of microbial genus with meta-characters. I got a lot of significantly associated genus, including some seems to be noises. May i know is it meaningful if i filter the results based on the value of coefficients? Like if i set a threshold for the absolute value of coefficients and only consider genus with coefficient larger than this threshold. If so, do you have any recommendations about the threshold? By the way, i have also set the threshold for q-values for filtering.
Thanks in advance.
