Multiple Testing (p-values adjustments)

To adjust p-values for multiple testing ProfCom uses the Monte-Carlo simulation approach. The estimated p-value corresponds exactly to the definition of an experiment–wise Westfall and Young P-value (Berriz, et al., 2003; Khatri, et al., 2004; Khatri, et al., 2005; Westfall and Young, 1993).
