[BioC] Limma FDR question

Hi all,

I was wondering how the p-value correction using fdr works.

The following Limma package’s command “ topTable(fit,number=100, adjust="fdr")” corrects the p-values but I don’t know which is the percent of false positive we can expect using  this correction. Is the FDR fixing at one pre-determined value, e.g.  5 %?

Thank you in advance
