SUMMARY:Yong Chen (University of Pennsylvania)
DESCRIPTION:Title: \nXmeta: a comprehensive tool-box for advanced meta-analysis\n – meta-analysis\, publication bias\, and beyond \nAbstract: \nIn this talk\, I am going to introduce a web-platform that we have been developing over the last few years\, known as ‘xmeta’ (https://www.xmeta.wiki/)\, which aims to facilitate advanced comprehensive meta-analysis for applied investigators within and beyond the Perelman School of Medicine at University of Pennsylvania. The functionality of this platform includes implementation of various multivariate meta-analysis for continuous and/or binary outcomes in randomized controlled trials\, meta-analysis of diagnostic tests with/without gold standard\, as well as methods to identify and correct for publication biases or small study effects. In addition\, I will also introduce the online-analysis feature\, which allows applied investigators to conduct these analyses without programing by themselves. At the end\, I will talk about the future direction of incorporating semi-automated text mining to speed up the systematic review process.
