### Why is the p-value significance threshold for HLA association tests $5*10^{-8}$? [closed]

Typically, a p-value of $p<=5*10^{-8}$ is used for genome-wide association testing, as there are roughly $1/p$ independent LD blocks in the human genome, so it correct for multiple testing across ...

### How should I use FDR p-value correction in case of multiple subject with multiple parameters?

In my experiment I have 45 subject. On each subject we measured two set of paramaters. Set A contains 23 and set B contains 203 unique parameter. I use spearmann correlation test to find connenction ...

### P value recalculation from multiple analysis (Transcriptomics)

I've done a differential expression analysis with transcriptomic information (microarrays and RNAseq) from different datasets by applying for some of them t-test and for the rest Wald-test. I've got ...

### How to compute a p-value for the similarity measurement of two DNA sequences/contigs?

I'm attempting to come up with a statistical model to determine the p-value for the similarity value $0 \le s \le 1$ of two DNA contigs. The idea is to get a numerical measure to estimate if two ...
