False Discovery Rates: Some Theory and Applications to DNA Microarrays

John Storey, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Department of Statistics, UC-Berkeley

Friday, February 7, 2003 at 12-1 p.m.

6225 Medical Sciences Center (MSC), 1300 University Avenue


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.
