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.
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
