I am using limma to analyze my array data. In my dataset three contrasts are relevant, and limma is able to fit these in a single run. I now would like to use the package multtest to calculate adjusted p-values (note: i know limma also is able to calculate these but because of follow-up analyses i now prefer to do this through multtest). Using the function 'mt.rawp2adjp' I can obtain the adjusted p-values, but i have to run this function for each contrast seperately: res1 <- mt.rawp2adjp(fit2$p.value[,1], "BH") res2 <- mt.rawp2adjp(fit2$p.value[,2], "BH") res3 <- mt.rawp2adjp(fit2$p.value[,3], "BH") Since i would like to automate my script, i tried to run multtest with these arguments: res.ALL <- mt.rawp2adjp(fit2$p.value[,colnames(cont.matrix)], "BH") This function runs fine, but i end up with a single list with a length of 68070 entries (68070 = 3x 22690; the MOE430A affy array i use consists of 22690 probesets and i inputted in multtest 3 contrasts). Obviously, this is not the output i can use. Therefore i would appreciate to know whether multtest is able to handle multiple contrast in a single run, and if so, how to perform such analyses.
