METRADISC (METa-analysis of RAnked DISCovery datasets), a generalized meta-analysis method for combining information across discovery-oriented datasets and for testing between-study heterogeneity for each biological variable of interest. The method is based on non-parametric Monte Carlo permutation testing.
METRADISC-XL is a software for METa-analysis of microarrays datasets and heterogeneity testing.
