The MHTdiscrete package provides two categories of important functions for discrete data mutliple hypothese testing:

FWER controlling procedures

Single-step: MBonf.p.adjust, MixBonf.p.adjust, Tarone.p.adjust.

Step-down: MHolm.p.adjust, TH.p.adjust.

Step-up: MHoch.p.adjust, Roth.p.adjust .

FDR controlling procedures

Step-down: MBL.p.adjust.

Step-up: MBH.p.adjust, GTBH.p.adjust, MBY.p.adjust, GTBY.p.adjust.
