Abstract: Modern bio-technologies have produced a vast amount of high-throughput data with the number of predictors much exceeding the sample size. Penalized variable selection has emerged as a powerful and efficient dimension reduction tool. However, control of false discoveries (i.e. inclusion of irrelevant variables) for penalized high-dimensional variable selection presents serious challenges. To effectively control the fraction of false discoveries for penalized variable selections, we propose a false discovery controlling procedure. The proposed method is general and flexible, and can work with a broad class of variable selection algorithms, not only for linear regressions, but also for generalized linear models and survival analysis.
