||twilight is an R/Bioconductor package that includes several functions for the statistical analysis of two-condition microarray data. The main algorithm for estimating the local false discovery rate is described in Scheid and Spang (2004a, 2004b). The newer versions of twilight include the permutation filtering algorithm introduced in Scheid and Spang (2006, 2007). For further information please visit the compdiag projects Local False Discovery Rate or Permutation Filtering.
Package twilight runs under Linux, Windows, and Mac OS. Please download the current package from Bioconductor. To run the package, you will need R. Package twilight includes a user's manual which can be downloaded separately from the link above.
