onlineFDR allows users to control the false discovery rate (FDR) or familywise error rate (FWER) for online hypothesis testing, where hypotheses arrive in a stream. In this framework, a null hypothesis is rejected based on the evidence against it and on the previous rejection decisions.
To install the latest (development) version of the onlineFDR package from Bioconductor, please run the following code:
if (!requireNamespace("BiocManager", quietly = TRUE)) install.packages("BiocManager") # The following initializes usage of Bioc BiocManager::install() BiocManager::install("onlineFDR")
Alternatively, you can install the package directly from GitHub:
# install.packages("devtools") # If devtools not installed devtools::install_github("dsrobertson/onlineFDR")
