On December 18, the Van Swinderen Prize was awarded during the 1821st meeting of the Royal Physics Society Groningen for best thesis and being able to reach out to a general (academic) public. Based on presentations of the four nominees on their research, I won the second prize and received € 1000!
The NetworkComparisonTest package has now been updated on GitHub (link here) to version 2.1.1. In this new version, I added an argument “p.adjust.methods”. With this argument you can specify how to control for multiple edge testing to control type I error. You can choose one of “holm”, “hochberg”, “hommel”, “bonferroni”, “BH”, “BY”, “fdr”, or “none”. If you do not specify this argument, it uses the default “none”.
In the older version, a Holm-Bonferroni correction was applied. However, when doing exploratory analyses, one might be interested in the uncorrected p-values. If you are doing hypothesis testing, you can now choose your own method of correction. See the help page of the p.adjust() function in R for more information about the different methods.
If you encounter problems or bugs, please let me know: firstname.lastname@example.org. I will upload the new version to CRAN soon.
Finished my PhD! 🙂
Below a podcast of an interview on AmsterdamFM in a weekly program about science in Amsterdam called Radio Swammerdam (in Dutch).
Check out this interesting blog of our Psychosystems Group regarding a recently accepted paper that purports to show that network structures do not replicate across datasets. To quote a statement of the blog in response to the paper:
“…state-of-the-art networks don’t just replicate – they replicate with stunning precision.”
Publications and presentations are up-to-date now!
