METAFUN tool. Research from a gender perspective.

The MetaFun web tool developed by the Bioinformatics and Biostatistics Unit of the CIPF, applies meta-analysis techniques that provide us with indicators on the clinical and biological activity in human diseases, it also provides in a simple but robust way, an image of all the studies of a certain disease in common.

It is an open access web tool. It has a specific module to include sex differences in human diseases. It is aimed at meta-analysis of omic data from the functional point of view, which allows the generation of relevant knowledge from a selection of biomedical studies, both existing and ongoing.

MetaFun works as a gateway to bioinformatics analysis programs, allowing data to be uploaded to the server for analysis, through a user account system. It uses AngularJS technology that allows its scalability in the future, and works with the JavaScript D3 library for data visualization, which makes it a simple, clear and interactive tool. Researchers can choose the type of chart that best suits their needs and the web creates it automatically.

The website is hosted on the computing infrastructure of the Prince Felipe Research Center. Functionality and impact: The use of this new platform is framed by the FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) applied to omic data from different sources and technologies (proteomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics ...), and enables the detection of mechanisms specific functions of a disease, for each sex
