Answer: how to combine p values?
there are several ways to do so (you can search the Internet). I am
not sure whether there exists a really good one.
One possibility is as below:
let P1 and P2 be the p-values from dataset 1 and dataset 2. Under the
null hypothesis both p-values are distributed uniformly in [0,1]. If
we assume independence then the probability that their product is less
than x equals x - x*log(x) (where log is the natural - base e -
logarithm). So your combined p-value is P1*P2 - P1*P2*log(P1*P2).
