crossmeta: Cross Platform Meta-Analysis of Microarray Data

Implements cross-platform and cross-species meta-analyses of Affymentrix, Illumina, and Agilent microarray data. This package automates common tasks such as downloading, normalizing, and annotating raw GEO data. The user then selects control and treatment samples in order to perform differential expression/pathway analyses for all comparisons. After analysing each contrast seperately, the user can select tissue sources for each contrast and specify any tissue sources that should be grouped for the subsequent meta-analyses. Finally, effect size and pathway meta-analyses can proceed and the results graphically explored.

Install the latest version of this package by entering the following in R:
