Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References Examples

Description

The function pval2locfdr takes a vector of p-values and estimates for each case the local fdr.

Usage

1
pval2locfdr(pValues, cutoff)

Arguments

pValues

pValues to be used.

cutoff

The local fdr cutoff for rejection. Hypotheses with local fdr smaller then cutoff will be rejected.

Value
