Spatial clustering of array CGH features in combination with hierarchical multiple testing
Benjamini and Heller (2007) suggest that the assumption of infinitely many elements in a cluster is not unrealistic for fMRI data in an environment of improved technical resolution. A similar development has occurred for our type of genomic data.

It is easy but tedious to show that the Simes critical values (4) and (5) conform to (6) and that the critical values (4) also conform to the stronger (8), so that the shortcuts may be used for these choices of the local test (see also Benjamini and Heller, 2008).
Multiple Testing for Exploratory Research

Rejoinder to "Multiple Testing for Exploratory Research"
The link between our proposed approach and the partial conjunction approach of Heller is a strong one, which we acknowledge and to which we should perhaps have pointed more explicitly.
Rejoinder to "Multiple Testing for Exploratory Research"
Our method can be seen as extending upon Heller’s work by allowing other choices of R, but diverging from it where the issue of multiple testing of partial conjunction hypotheses is concerned, a problem which Benjamini and Heller (2008) addressed in an FDR context.

Heller suggests a two-stage approach that separates the data used for exploratory analysis in two parts.
