Answer: A: Benjamini+ Hochberg multiple testing p.adjust R
... TL;DR There is nothing wrong with the output from the p.adjust function using the "BH" method. If you had more p-values that were not as highly similar, the results would generate different "adjusted p-values" from the "BH" method. You can see the exact calculations performed by p.adjust by simply t ...

Comment: C: Constructing a mean ROC curve based on 5 iterations
... Yes, I meant to concatenate them into a single vector. Nearly all methods provide a score which is used for ranking. It's odd that it's not provided as output. They may have an internal score that is just not getting returned to the user. You might need to contact the authors or see if you can modif ...

Answer: A: Constructing a mean ROC curve based on 5 iterations
... What happens in 5-fold cross-validation is that you train on 4 of the folds and predict on the hold-out fold. This procedure is repeated until all folds have hold-out predictions on them. Given this preamble, you could just concatenate the scores and labels from the 5 hold-out predictions (which sho ...

Comment: C: Computing ROC curves without scores
... the Precision-Recall curve basically assesses what your saying. Precision is the fraction of predicted positives that are labeled as true positive (also known as positive predictive value). You can always mark with a dot the precise point on the curve that equals the top 100 genes. This would give y ...

Comment: C: Computing ROC curves without scores
... I disagree on the point that ROC curves doesn't give the following information "how many genes you need to take to get a given sensitivity value". You can in fact pick the corresponding number of genes from the threshold that produces X% sensitivity on the ROC curve (and understand what the false po ...

Comment: C: Computing ROC curves without scores
... Yep it is a network-based gene prioritization approach. Based on their paper, it does create a score that it uses to rank the genes. However, from their user documents they don't provide it as an output. So from a practical perspective, like Jean-Karim noted, you likely have to use the rank of the g ...

Comment: C: Computing ROC curves without scores
... That's odd that the program doesn't give you a numerical value. Without a numerical value you have no way of knowing whether two genes were tied on a prioritization assessment. So you likely will have to just assume no ties. I think the most explainable way is what you propose, that is you construct ...

Comment: C: Alternative tools replace MutDB to predict consequences of deleterious SNV
... Could you clarify whether you are interested in germline mutations or somatic mutations? The table you include has many cancer-specific methods, but the semantic "deleterious SNV" would suggest you are interested in germline mutations. ...

Answer: A: Alternative tools replace MutDB to predict consequences of deleterious SNV
... You could use scores from the VEST algorithm (PMID: 23819870). It's pretty easy to score SNVs by just submitting them to the CRAVAT webserver (http://www.cravat.us/CRAVAT/, PMID: 29092935). In one of the latest papers to benchmark performance, VEST is among the best (PMID: 29179779). ...

Comment: C: Why GWASs cannot speculate what kind of mutation the SNP would cause?
... My assumption is that generally the "lead" SNPs identified as most significant in GWAS are not necessarily the actual causal SNP because of linkage disequilibrium. Therefore trying to ascertain a function or effect of those SNPs would be misleading. I believe they generally try to do further studie ...
