Hi, Is the FDR assumed to be a certain percent (e.g. 5%) in the FDR adjustment for p values? If so, is it possible to change it? Are these FDR adjusted p-values the same as/similar to q-values in SAM procedure? Thanks in advance!

Dear Fai, > Is the FDR assumed to be a certain percent (e.g. 5%) in the FDR adjustment > for p values? No, it is not. When you use multtest you get "adjusted p-values", and thus is up to you to choose the cutting point. The meaning of the "adjusted p-value" is very well explained in the documentation for multtest (look at "multtest.intro"). > p-values the same as/similar to q-values in SAM procedure? They are related, but are not the same. You can look, for example, at the recent paper by Storey and Tibshirani (PNAS, 2003, 100(16): 9440-9445) for explanation of q-values and relation to FDR.
