This function calculates an alpha-modified rho statistic from a set of normalized ranks by comparing them to a uniform distribution. Specifically, the ranks are ordered and p-values calculated at each position in the ordered vector by comparison to a Beta distribution. The rho value returned is the smallest p-value identified in this way across all scores. Should not be used by end users.
A single column matrix of rank scores, with row.names indicating the gRNA labels.
