Hierarchical Inference

Bioconductor version: 3.17

Tools to perform hierarchical inference for one or multiple studies / data sets based on high-dimensional multivariate (generalised) linear models. A possible application is to perform hierarchical inference for GWA studies to find significant groups or single SNPs (if the signal is strong) in a data-driven and automated procedure. The method is based on an efficient hierarchical multiple testing correction and controls the FWER. The functions can easily be run in parallel.
