Dear Bioconductor List,

We are planning a genotyping study to be analyzed using false discovery
rates (FDRs) (See Storey and Tibshirani PNAS 2003; 100:9440-5).  I am
interested in learning if there is any consensus as to how many features
(ie. how many P values) need to be studied before reasonably reliable
FDRs can be derived.  Does anyone know of a citation where this is
