Extracting the lists of features of interest
The function returns the list of features in common using the hmax rule (Frequentist model).
To select a list of interesting features from the frequentist model we suggest a decision rules in the paper: the maximum of T(h)=nb genes in common/nb genes in common under the hypothesis of independence. It is pointing out the strongest deviation from independence.
The function returns an object of the class list. Each element is a matrix where the first column contains the name of the features while the other columns contain the p-values* from the experiments. It also saves a .csv file with the same information.
*instead of the p-values any other measure used to rank the features in the experiments can be used.
