Normal Deviate’s blog on false discovery rates

There is an interesting guest post by Ryan Tibshirani on the Normal Deviate’s blog comparing the False Discovery Rates (FDR)* associated with different methods of screening for potentially interesting genes (based on p-value assessments). I want to come to this at some point.

*FDR = E(number of null genes called significant/number of genes called significant)
