Unformatted text preview: 1 1 Calculation of Sample Size while Controlling False Discovery Rate with Application to Microarray Peng Liu 3/25/2008 2 Question Microarray experiments are expensive. Cost: ~ $$$ Effort: Experiment and data analysis take considerable time How many chips are needed for reliable results without wasting money and time? Estimate sample size before experiments! What is a robust and simple statistical method? 3 Calculating sample size when testing one hypothesis Type I Error : false positives Type II Error: false negatives (1power) Power : true positives Want: sample size big enough so that we control type I error at a certain rate and achieve a desirable power if we know the true parameters. correct (Power) Type II Error False Null Type I Error correct True Null Reject Null Accept Null Hypothesis 4 Calculating sample size when testing one hypothesis Two types of errors (page 216 of handout) Type I Error : Pr( reject H H is true) Type II Error: Pr( do not reject H H a is true) = (1power) Power : Pr( reject H H a is true) (page 222 for computing power) correct (Power) Type II Error False Null Type I Error correct True Null Reject Null Accept Null Hypothesis 2 5 Hypothesis test Test is set up so that type I error rate is fixed and small. The tolerable type I error rate is often called the significance level and denoted with...
