**False discovery rate**— (FDR) control is a statistical method used in multiple hypothesis testing to correct for multiple comparisons. In a list of rejected hypotheses, FDR controls the expected proportion of incorrectly rejected null hypotheses (type I errors).… …2

**Discovery and development of nucleoside and nucleotide reverse-transcriptase inhibitors**— (NRTIs and NtRTIs) began in the 1980s when the AIDS epidemic hit Western societies. NRTIs inhibit the reverse transcriptase (RT), an enzyme that controls the replication of the genetic material of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The first …3

**Discovery Expedition**— The expedition ship Discovery in the Antarctic, alongside the Great Ice Barrier The British National Antarctic Expedition, 1901–04, generally known as the Discovery Expedition, was the first official British exploration of the Antarctic regions… …4

**False etymology**— A false etymology is an assumed or postulated etymology that current consensus among scholars of historical linguistics holds to be incorrect. Many false etymologies may be described as folk etymologies , the distinction being that folk… …5

**Familywise error rate**— In statistics, familywise error rate (FWER) is the probability of making one or more false discoveries, or type I errors among all the hypotheses when performing multiple pairwise tests [Shaffer J. P. Multiple Hypothesis Testing, Annual Review of …7

**Per-comparison error rate**— In statistics, per comparison error rate (PCER) is the probability of a result in the absence of any formal multiple hypothesis testing correction.[1] Typically, when considering a result under many hypotheses, some tests will give false… …8

**Multiple comparisons**— In statistics, the multiple comparisons or multiple testing problem occurs when one considers a set of statistical inferences simultaneously.[1] Errors in inference, including confidence intervals that fail to include their corresponding… …9

**Significance analysis of microarrays**— (SAM) is a statistical technique, established in 2001 by Tusher, Tibshirani and Chu, for determining whether changes in gene expression are statistically significant. With the advent of DNA microarrays it is now possible to measure the expression …11

**Data dredging**— (data fishing, data snooping) is the inappropriate (sometimes deliberately so) use of data mining to uncover misleading relationships in data. Data snooping bias is a form of statistical bias that arises from this misuse of statistics. Any… …13

**Gene expression profiling**— Heat maps of gene expression values show how experimental conditions influenced production (expression) of mRNA for a set of genes. Green indicates reduced expression. Cluster analysis has placed a group of down regulated genes in the upper left… …14

**Occam's razor**— For the aerial theatre company, see Ockham s Razor Theatre Company. It is possible to describe the other planets in the solar system as revolving around the Earth, but that explanation is unnecessarily complex compared to the modern consensus… …15

**Statistical significance**— In statistics, a result is called statistically significant if it is unlikely to have occurred by chance. A statistically significant difference simply means there is statistical evidence that there is a difference; it does not mean the… …16

**Stepwise regression**— In statistics, stepwise regression includes regression models in which the choice of predictive variables is carried out by an automatic procedure. [Hocking, R. R. (1976) The Analysis and Selection of Variables in Linear Regression, Biometrics,… …17

**P-value**— In statistical significance testing, the p value is the probability of obtaining a test statistic at least as extreme as the one that was actually observed, assuming that the null hypothesis is true. One often rejects the null hypothesis when the …19
