       This script runs R-based statistical tools to identify Significantly Mutated Genes (SMGs),
       when given per-gene mutation rates categorized by mutation type, and the overall
       background mutation rates (BMRs) for each of those categories (gene_mr_file, created using
       "music bmr calc-bmr").

       P-values and false discovery rates (FDRs) for each gene in gene_mr_file is calculated
       using three tests: Fisher's Combined P-value test (FCPT), Likelihood Ratio test (LRT), and
       the Convolution test (CT). For a gene, if its FDR for at least 2 of these tests is <=
       max_fdr, it will be output as an SMG. Another output file with prefix "_detailed" will
       have p-values and FDRs for all genes.


           The user can provide a BMR modifier for each gene in the ROI file, which is a
           multiplier for the categorized background mutation rates, before testing them against
           the gene's categorized mutation rates. Such a file can be used to correct for regional
           or systematic bias in mutation rates across the genome that may be correlated to CpG
           deamination or DNA repair processes like transcription-coupled repair or mismatch
           repair. Mutation rates have also been associated with DNA replication timing, where
           higher mutation rates are seen in late replicating regions. Note that the same per-
           gene multiplier is used on each mutation category of BMR. Any genes from the ROI file
           that are not in the BMR modifier file will be tested against unmodified overall BMRs
           per mutation category. BMR modifiers of <=0 are not permitted, because that's just
           Genes with consistently lower MRs than the BMRs across mutation categories, may show
           up in the results as an SMG (by CT or LRT). If such genes are not of interest, they
           may be assigned a p-value of 1. This should also speed things up. Genes with higher
           Indel or Truncation rates than the background will not be skipped even if the gene's
           overall MR is lower than the BMR. If bmr-modifiers are applied, this step uses the
           modified BMRs instead.
