False Discovery Rate Analysis in R

(back to index)

Overview:

This is a list intended to facilitate "comparison shopping" of R software for False Discovery Rate analysis, with links to the respective home pages and a short description of features.

Abbreviations:

FDR: | generic term for a False Discovery Rate |

Fdr: | tail area based FDR, q-value |

fdr: | density-based local FDR |
