The method used by limmaGUI and afflmGUI is equivalent to the command line

   decideTests(object, method="nestedF", adjust="none", p.value=0.01)

In other words, it is based on the older command classifyTestsF().

I don't know of any papers at all yet on multiple testing for microarray 
linear models (i.e., for multple linear models). The methods implemented in 
limma do not yet have any further documentation.
