  Population Health - Division of Biostatistics:   On Procedures Controlling the False Discovery Rate for Testing Hierarchically Ordered Hypotheses --- "Complex large-scale studies, such as those related to microarray and quantitative trait loci, often involve testing multiple hierarchically ordered hypotheses. However, most existing false discovery rate (FDR) controlling procedures do not exploit the inherent hierarchical structure among the tested hypotheses. In this talk, I present key developments toward controlling the FDR when testing the hierarchically ordered hypotheses. First, I offer a general framework under which hierarchical testing methods can be developed. Then, I present several hierarchical testing procedures which control the FDR under various forms of dependence. Our simulation studies show that these proposed methods can be more powerful than alternative methods such as Yekutieli's hierarchical testing procedure. Finally, we apply our proposed procedures to a real data set involving abundances of microbes in different ecological environments. This talk is based on joint work with Gavin Lynch." , Wenge Guo, Ph.D. Associate Professor New Jersey Institute of Technology New Jersey , 11:00 AM, 650 First Avenue, 5th Floor Conference Room - Contact Bernice Townsend at 212-263-0363 or at Bernice.Townsend@nyumc.org
