Meta-Analyses on P-Values of Differential Analyses

Bioconductor version: Release (3.13)

Implements a variety of methods for combining p-values in differential analyses of genome-scale datasets. Functions can combine p-values across different tests in the same analysis (e.g., genomic windows in ChIP-seq, exons in RNA-seq) or for corresponding tests across separate analyses (e.g., replicated comparisons, effect of different treatment conditions). Support is provided for handling log-transformed input p-values, missing values and weighting where appropriate.
