Given a set of targets of interest, this function generates a ROC curve and associated statistics from the results of a CRISPR screen. Specifically, it orders the elements targeted in the screen by the specified statistic, and then plots the cumulative proportion of positive hits on the y-axis. The corresponding vextors and Area Under the Curve (AUC) statistic are returned as a list.

Note that ranking statistics in CRISPR screens are (usually) permutation-based, and so some granularity is expected. This function does a little extra work to ensure that hits are counted as soon as the requisite value of the ranking statistic is reached regardless of where the gene is located within the block of equally-significant genes. Functionally, this means that the drawn curve is somewhat anticonservative in cases where the gene ranks are not well differentiated.
