  • Concise treatment of theoretical and practical properties of the false discovery rate (FDR)
  • Detailed examples from the life sciences, accompanied by software solutions
  • Includes latest developments of simultaneous statistical inference methods for a variety of non-standard situations
This monograph will provide an in-depth mathematical treatment of modern multiple test procedures controlling the false discovery rate (FDR) and related error measures, particularly addressing applications to fields such as genetics, proteomics, neuroscience and general biology. The book will also include a detailed description how to implement these methods in practice. Moreover, new developments focusing on non-standard assumptions are also included, especially multiple tests for discrete data. The book primarily addresses researchers and practitioners but will also be beneficial for graduate students.
