WEIGHING/FILTERING OF HYPOTHESES IN MULTIPLE TESTING SCENARIO

High throughput assays have enabled us to evaluate a large number of features simultaneously resulting in the need for stringent multiple testing correction. Weighing/filtering the hypotheses using independent information has been proposed as a way to reduce the burden of multiple testing correction. In a blog post titled "Prefiltering very large numbers of tests" Thomas Lumley wrote: "The penalty for doing a million tests is surprisingly small; correspondingly, the benefit for not doing a million tests is also surprisingly small." In this talk I will aim to explain and quantify this statement.
