The paper I am reading gives a table of results for 3 different models:

The paper doesn't explain how the correction is performed, and it clearly isn't Bonferroni. Does someone have an idea how this correction is performed?

I wasn't diligent enough before posting the question, as the answer lies in the RobustSNP publication, and not the general knowledge of multiple testing corrections:

Robust Association Tests Under Different Genetic Models, Allowing for Binary or Quantitative Traits and Covariates

Here they explain their MAX3 correction, which estimates the covariance matrix of different genetic models. Thank you for your time!

    $\begingroup$ OK. I looked at this for quite some time yesterday and was convinced they had done something wrong or used a non-standard approach for error correction. It does indeed seem they used some non-standard approach contained in a non-standard R package. Glad to see you figured this out! Thanks for posting the answer. $\endgroup$ May 30, 2019 at 15:24
