hierbase: Enabling Hierarchical Multiple Testing

Implementation of hierarchical inference based on Renaux and Bühlmann (2021) 'Efficient Multiple Testing Adjustment for Hierarchical Inference' <arXiv:2104.15028>. The R-package 'hierbase' offers tools to perform hierarchical inference for one or multiple data sets based on ready-to-use (group) test functions or alternatively a user specified (group) test function. The procedure is based on an efficient hierarchical multiple testing correction and controls the family-wise error rate (FWER). The functions can easily be run in parallel. Hierarchical inference can be applied to (low- or) high-dimensional data sets to find significant groups or single variables (depending on the signal strength and correlation structure) in a data-driven and automated procedure. Possible applications can for example be found in statistical genetics and statistical genomics.
