A Robust Method to Estimate the FDR

  • Pounds and Cheng (2006) describe a robust method to estimate the false discovery rate. Unlike other methods, this method is conservative when applied to one-sided or discrete p-values.

  • Additional details are available in the supplementary materials.

  • We have developed S-plus and R libraries to implement the method. To receive alerts regarding software updates, send an e-mail with "Software Update" in the subject line.

  • This User's Guide may be helpful in getting started.
