The sub ject is moving from exploratory surveying to detailed astrophysics.
Conference Summary
In discovery-oriented exploratory studies such as genome-wide gene expression survey or association rule mining in marketing applications, it is desirable to strike a meaningful balance between the amounts false positive and false negative errors than to control the FDR or pFDR alone.
