An exploration of aspects of Bayesian multiple testing

Journal Article (Journal Article)

There has been increased interest of late in the Bayesian approach to multiple testing (often called the multiple comparisons problem), motivated by the need to analyze DNA microarray data in which it is desired to learn which of potentially several thousand genes are activated by a particular stimulus. We study the issue of prior specification for such multiple tests; computation of key posterior quantities; and useful ways to display these quantities. A ecision-theoretic approach is also considered. © 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
