TEAM: A Multiple Testing Algorithm on the Aggregation Tree for Flow Cytometry Analysis

In immunology studies, flow cytometry is a commonly used multivariate single-cell assay. One key goal in flow cytometry analysis is to pinpoint the immune cells responsive to certain stimuli. Statistically, this problem can be translated into comparing two protein expression probability density functions (PDFs) before and after the stimulus; the goal is to pinpoint the regions where these two pdfs differ. In this paper, we model this comparison as a multiple testing problem. First, we partition the sample space into small bins.
