... The statistics from Fisher's method simply sums up the p-values on log
scale across the studies and multiplied by minus two. Under the null
hypothesis, this follows a chisquare distribution with degrees of
freedom equivalent to twice the number of studies.
If you store the p-values from different s ...

... Sonia Shah, thanks for the link. The Beta score is calculated as you
said with the addition that any negative values of Cy3 and Cy5 are set
to zero.

Answer:
A: Curious file size issues

... I am not an expert in R data representations. However, my experience
suggests that if an object is stored incorrectly as matrix instead of
data.frame, then the object sizes may be bloated. Also if it is a
data.frame, check that each column is stored correctly - via
