This package is for version 3.10 of Bioconductor; for the stable, up-to-date release version, see onlineFDR.

Online error control

Bioconductor version: 3.10

This package allows users to control the false discovery rate (FDR) or familywise error rate (FWER) for online hypothesis testing, where hypotheses arrive sequentially in a stream. 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.
