The metabolic_gofer dataset displays the data necessary for building a GOfER diagram (Graphical Overview for Evidence Reviews) from the studies included in the meta-analysis.

Please, refer to the Building a GOfER with ‘ggplot2’ and ‘patchwork’ vignette for a walk-through.

In case you are not familiar with R or just would like to download this dataset, you can choose to download it as a .xlsx file.
