Empirical Bayes and semi-Bayes adjustments for a vast number of estimations.

Strömberg, Ulf LU (2009) In European Journal of Epidemiology 24. p.737-741
Abstract
Investigators in modern molecular/genetic epidemiology studies commonly analyze data on a vast number of candidate genetic markers. In such situations, rather than conventional estimation of effects (odds ratios), more accurate estimation methods are needed. The author proposes consideration of empirical Bayes and semi-Bayes methods, which yield 'adjustments for multiple estimations' by shrinking conventional effect estimates towards the overall average effect.
