Abstract: Recent genome-wide association studies have reported the discoveries of genetic variants of small to moderate effects. However, most studies of complex diseases face a great challenge because the number of significant variants is less than what is required to explain the disease heritability. A new approach is needed to recognize all potential discoveries in the data. In this paper, we present a practical model-free procedure to estimate the number of true discoveries as a function of the number of top-ranking SNPs together with the confidence bounds. This approach allows a practical methodology of general utility and produces relevant statistical quantities with simple interpretation. © 2011 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
