Response to comment by Loiselle & Ramchandra

I thank Loiselle and Ramchandra (hereafter ‘the authors’) for their interest. First, I should say that it might have been a mistake to use the term ‘false discovery rate’. This is so because the same term is used in the world of multiple comparison studies. It is defined there in the same way as in my paper, but the context is quite different. Corrections for multiple comparisons all give simply thep-value if applied to a single experiment, so they take no account of the false-positive rate that is discussed in my paper.
