Welcome to STAR application
Redefining the meaning of disease... Together!
STAR provides a powerful search engine across samples, experiments, and attributes from GEO. In all, 1,136,156 digital samples described by 36,356,992 attributes that are drawn from 31,875 experiments described by 127,500 attributes are available.
STAR uses an annotation engine based on a semantic network of crowd-sourced tags that that represent biological annotations. In all, 516 tags have been used to make 8,376 annotations of digital experiments representing 666,540 annotations of digital samples.
STAR enables meta-analysis of digitally tagged samples for robust gene signatures using 72,794,862 gene probes across 3,053 platforms within GEO. In all 310 meta-analyses of standard fixed and random models have been run with corresponding Forrest plots available.
STAR represents an annotation layer built on open public data provided by GEO. It is provided as an open resource for the scientific community as a tool to derive robust gene signatures from public functional genomics data. Currently 44 users have contributed.
