Understanding False Discovery Rate
Timothy Gardner
FDR is a very simple concept. It is the number of false discoveries in an experiment divided by total number of discoveries in that experiment. But there is a problem, you never know how many discoveries are actually real or false when you accepted them. So how do you estimate FDR from your data?
Understanding Family-Wise Error Rate
Timothy Gardner
Family-Wise Error Rate (FWER) is an approach for multiple testing correction. It is a scary sounding term, but it’s simply the probability that one or more of your “family” of multiple tests is false. FWER offers a generally more stringent approach than FDR to reduce your false findings.
