Computational repositioning and preclinical validation of mifepristone for human vestibular schwannoma

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5882888
PMID: 29615643
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-23609-7

[…] e converted to Cohen’s d statistic values and standard error values. Resulting values were combined by gene using a fixed effects meta-analysis (as implemented in the meta.summaries function from the rmeta package in R. Probes without gene annotations were removed from gene-level consolidation. Following consolidation, significantly differentially expressed genes were taken to be those with a Bonf […]


A transcriptome wide association study identifies PALMD as a susceptibility gene for calcific aortic valve stenosis

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5840407
PMID: 29511167
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-03260-6

[…] principal components to evaluate the effect of the top SNP identified in our TWAS analysis. We then performed a fixed-effect meta-analysis using the inverse-variance weighted method as implemented in rmeta package version 2.16 in R. To look for other significant variants associated with CAVS in UK Biobank, we performed a GWAS from the genotyped data using additive logistic regression models in PLI […]


Leisure time physical activity and prevalence of non communicable pathologies and prescription medication in Spain

PLoS One
PMCID: 5774808
PMID: 29352280
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0191542

[…] sible interaction between PA and sex, the same logistic regression models described beforehand were performed including an interaction term. Analysis was performed using R software and its libraries "rmeta” and “survey”[,], adjusting for the design effects of the EHIS. […]


Integrated Analysis of Gene Expression Differences in Twins Discordant for Disease and Binary Phenotypes

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5758574
PMID: 29311748
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-18585-3

[…] tables for each of the platform types used by the seven different studies. We performed a fixed-effect meta-analysis across probe-level values for each gene (inspired by Sweeney et al.) using the R ‘rmeta’ package. This yielded the overall mean differences, standard errors, and the p-values for each gene for each of the seven studies. Since the seven studies used different microarray platforms, t […]


The fine scale genetic structure and evolution of the Japanese population

[…] rtion of admixture.To test if the timing of admixture agrees among a group of Japanese clusters, we performed meta-analysis of the estimated times and computed the P-value for heterogeneity using the rmeta library (version 2.16) of the R software.To directly model ancestral populations of the Japanese and continental Asians (dataset C), we performed unsupervised genetic clustering using the ADMIXT […]
