# False discovery rate estimation for massively parallel restricted likelihood ratio tests

### Description

Given a set of RLRT results and a threshold, this function outputs an estimate of the FDR (in the empirical Bayes sense of Efron, 2010) when the given threshold is used to determine which null hypotheses to reject.

### Usage

1 | ```
Fdr.rlrt(rlrt.obj, threshold)
``` |

### Arguments

`rlrt.obj` |
an RLRT object obtained from |

`threshold` |
threshold at which the null hypothesis is rejected. |

### Value

A list with elements

`MoM` |
FDR based on method of moments estimator of RLRT parameters (Greven et al., 2008). |

`ML` |
FDR based on maximum likelihood estimation of RLRT parameters, as described in Greven et al. (2008). |
