This package is for version 3.9 of Bioconductor; for the stable, up-to-date release version, see onlineFDR.

Online FDR control

Bioconductor version: 3.9

This package allows users to control the false discovery rate for online hypothesis testing, where hypotheses arrive sequentially in a stream, as presented by Javanmard and Montanari (2015, 2018) and Ramdas et al. (2017). In this framework, a null hypothesis is rejected based only on the previous decisions, as the future p-values and the number of hypotheses to be tested are unknown.
