Consider the problem of assessing the weight of evidence for each of several hypotheses. Under a realistic model with a free parameter for e...

The way false discovery rates (FDRs) are used in the analysis of genomics data leads to excessive false positive rates. In this sense, FDRs overcorrect for the excessive conservatism (bias toward false negatives) of methods of adjusting p values that control a family-wise error rate. Estimators of the local FDR (LFDR) are much less biased but have...
