This package provides meta-analysis of significance values.

Although the preferred way of performing meta-analysis uses effect 
sizes sometimes these are unavailable and only p-values can be 
obtained from the primary studies. The metap package provides several 
ways of synthesising p-values and a graphical display. There exist a 
number of packages on CRAN which use one or other of these techniques 
in the context of genetic studies but metap is designed for general 
purpose use.

Comments welcome.
