Welcome to the new bioconductor.org!


This is the development version of MetaVolcanoR; for the stable release version, see MetaVolcanoR.

Gene Expression Meta-analysis Visualization Tool

Bioconductor version: Development (3.19)

MetaVolcanoR combines differential gene expression results. It implements three strategies to summarize differential gene expression from different studies. i) Random Effects Model (REM) approach, ii) a p-value combining-approach, and iii) a vote-counting approach. In all cases, MetaVolcano exploits the Volcano plot reasoning to visualize the gene expression meta-analysis results.
