Local false discovery rate software

5 November 2008 Leave a comment

Zahra Montazeri and David Bickel developed empiricalBayes, an R software bundle that provides a simple solution to the extreme multiple testing problem. It contains two packages:

  • localFDR estimates local false discovery rates given a vector of p-values.
  • HighProbability determines which p-values are low enough that their alternative hypotheses can be considered highly probable.
