I have 11 tests and I expect at least half of them to be truly different (I expect that from prior knowledge, there are papers that directly indicate possible difference). But the power of each test is not that big, resulting p-values are not that small:
0.0403, 0.0726, 0.0289, 0.6864, 0.003, 0.3539, 0.3753, 0.1256, 0.0292, 0.0858, 0.0024
Do I really need a FDR correction in this situation? Can I say that it could be too strict, select all tests that gave a raw p-value less than 0.05 (I am working in the field where people still appreciate this magic 0.05 number) and describe the prior knowledge on why we expect that many positive results?
I am not aiming for a lot of positive results, I still have 2 "significant" after FDR correction, however, I feel that smth is wrong with applying FDR when I expect a lot of true positive results (but have small power unfortunately).
