TreeQTL: hierarchical error control for eQTL findings

    loading  Checking for direct PDF access through Ovid


Summary: Commonly used multiplicity adjustments fail to control the error rate for reported findings in many expression quantitative trait loci (eQTL) studies. TreeQTL implements a hierarchical multiple testing procedure which allows control of appropriate error rates defined relative to a grouping of the eQTL hypotheses.

Availability and Implementation: The R package TreeQTL is available for download at

Supplementary information: Supplementary data are available at Bioinformatics online.
