The false discovery rate offers a natural balance between true positives and false positives when testing many hypotheses simultaneously. We present some recent results on false discovery rates that add to their accuracy, interpretability, and applicability. We also discuss the application of false discovery rates to the problem of detecting differentially expressed genes in DNA microarray experiments.
Joint work with Jonathan Taylor, Rob Tibshirani, and David Siegmund.
