[…] Laird meta-analytic technique with the ‘metafor’ package (rma.uni function).We also produced forest plots to illustrate the variance of expression levels for each gene (http://apps.chiragjpgroup.org/disctwinexprdb/). The meta-analysis yields two important metrics for measuring heterogeneity (I2 and QEp).The I2 estimate is a commonly used metric to measure percentage of variation in meta-analysis […]
