I am completely new to meta-analysis and am a bit lost on how to proceed.
I have two biomarker datasets; each one is using a different microarray platform. I have the protein names, the concentration in each subject (one dataset has 15 subjects while another has 22) as well as fold change, p-value, and AUC values.
Is there a simple way to do a meta-analysis with this information? For example, is there any way to join the datasets and calculate a combined fold change and AUC? I was thinking of using sumlog() from the metap package in R to do a combined p-value, but I am lost on how to combine the other two values, or if this would even be appropriate. I've attached a screenshot of one of the datasets
Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!
