Comprehensive mathematical coverage of techniques for multiple-hypotheses testing can be found in the works of Dudoit and van der Laan (2008), which illustrate different applications using genomic data. g. between-biomarkers, or biomarkeroutcome) reflects the level of association between the variables. Such an association can be computed using parametric and non-parametric techniques. The former assumes that the variables can be jointly modelled with a normal distribution. The latter does not make this assumption, and is based on the idea of comparing the value ranks of the variables.

One such permutation-based method for estimating the FDR is the Significance Analysis of Microarrays (SAM) proposed by Tusher et al. (2001), which have become a well-known analysis tool in the microarray research community. As input, this method accepts a data matrix, D, encoding the expression levels of g genes across s samples, belonging to two classes. The outputs are a list of differentially expressed genes and an estimation of the FDR. , 2001; Ewens and Grant, 2005). Samples in D are permuted and a number, numPer, of random permuted datasets are obtained.

5 Example of ROC curve obtained from testing data consisting of 10 samples, 2 classes: Medical complication and recovery, and a hypothetical classification model that assigns samples to classes according to numerical scores or probabilities. 6 Comparison of (non-parametric) ROC curves derived from 2 classifiers independently tested on 400 samples (200 samples/class). 5 were generated with the ROC calculator of Eng (2006), using a curve-fitting parametric technique. , 2008). Once different biomarkers or prediction models have been evaluated individually, one should compare them on the basis of a quality indicator, for example a statistical test or the area under the ROC curve (Shapiro, 1999).
