#' @title P-values and test-statistics from the Hedenfalk et al. (2001) gene
#'   expression dataset
#'
#' @usage data(hedenfalk)
#'
#' @description The data from the breast cancer gene expression study of
#' Hedenfalk et al. (2001) were obtained and analyzed. A comparison was made
#' between 3,226 genes of two mutation types, BRCA1 (7 arrays) and BRCA2 (8
#' arrays). The data included here are p-values, test-statistics, and
#' permutation null test-statistics obtained from a two-sample t-test analysis
#' on a set of 3170 genes, as described in Storey and Tibshirani (2003).
#'
#' @return A list called \code{hendfalk} containing:
#' \item{p}{Vector of 3,170
#' p-values of tests comparing BRCA1 to BRCA2.}
#' \item{stat}{Vector of 3,170
#' absolute two-sample t-statistics comparing BRCA1 to BRCA2.}
#' \item{stat0}{A
#' 3,170 by 100 matrix of absolute two-sample t-statistics from 100 independent
#' permutations of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 labels; the row \code{stat0[i,].}
#' contains the permutation statistics corresponding to observed statistic
#' \code{stat[i]}.}
