sgof-package: Multiple hypothesis testing

Description Details Author(s) References


This package implements seven different methods for multiple testing problems. The Benjamini and Hochberg (1995) false discovery rate controlling procedure and its modification for dependent tests Benjamini and Yekutieli (2001), the method called Binomial SGoF proposed in Carvajal Rodríguez et al. (2009) and its conservative and bayesian versions called Conservative SGoF (de Uña Álvarez, 2011) and Bayesian SGoF (Castro Conde and de Uña Álvarez, 2013 13/06), respectively, and the BB-SGoF (Beta-Binomial SGoF, de Uña Álvarez, 2012) and Discrete SGoF (Castro Conde et al., 2014) procedures which are adaptations of SGoF method for possibly correlated tests and for discrete tests, respectively. Number of rejections, FDR and adjusted p-values are computed among other things.
