We have created a web-based tutorial to complement the workshop: Introduction to Systematic Review & Meta-Analysis of Animal Studies

The web-based app uses R programming language to work through a meta-analysis of animal data but you do not need any previous experience with R to complete the tutorial.

The tutorial use examples data from the publication:

McCann SK, Cramond F, Macleod MR et al. Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of the Efficacy of Interleukin-1 Receptor Antagonist in Animal Models of Stroke: an Update. Translational Stroke Research 7, 395–406 (2016).
