Description

Performs the Benjamini-Yekutieli FDR-controlling method for multiple hypothesis testing.

Usage

1
BY(u, alpha = 0.05)

Arguments

u

A (non-empty) numeric vector of p-values.

alpha

Numeric value. The significance level of the test.

Details

The function BY allows for the application of the Benjamini and Yekutieli (2001) false discovery rate controlling procedure under dependence assumptions. The false discovery rate is estimated by the simple method proposed by: Dalmasso, Broet, Moreau (2005), by taking n=1 in their formula.

Value

A list containing the following values:

Rejections

The number of effects declared by the BY procedure.

FDR

The estimated false discovery rate.

Adjusted.pvalues

The adjusted p-values.

data

The original p-values.

alpha

The specified significance level for the test.

call

The matched call.
