This mode compares the distribution of each feature used in a set of specific biomarker models and outputs a summary statistic for each model processed. Distribution differences are quantified for feature in the same way as distributionDifferenceByFeatureMode. Summary statistics are calculated for each model. P-values are summarized with the Stouffer approach. Rank ratio statistics are summarized as an average of rank ratio across all features in a model.

It is implemented by org.bdval.DistributionDifferenceByModelMode.java
