calcPval: Calculates empirical P-values

Description

We propose a simple sampling scheme to verify significant outlier loci subject to local adaptation based on the distribution of the α_{I} values observed after the MCMC iterations (approximated through a region-specific normal distribution (N(α_{I})) without using a time consuming reversible jump model for testing the null hypotheses:

1. For each region I, sample a single value x_{I} \sim N(α_{I}) and y_{I} \sim N(α_{I}), resulting in a distribution of sampled values D_{x} and D_{y} across regions.

2. For each region I, increment its counter c_I if y_I is above the q-quantile for D_{x}.

3. repeat (1-2) 1000 times

The empirical P-value for each α_{I} is the number of times the sample x_{I} is greater than the user-defined significance level q (e.g., the 0.95 quantile) divided by the number of iterations (1000 times).
