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, 1,207,558 digital samples described by 38,641,856 attributes that are drawn from 34,435 experiments described by 137,740 attributes are available.
STAR uses an annotation engine based on a semantic network of crowd-sourced tags that that represent biological annotations. In all, 619 tags have been used to make 38,916 annotations of digital experiments representing 2,742,585 annotations of digital samples.
STAR enables meta-analysis of digitally tagged samples for robust gene signatures using 77,091,372 gene probes across 3,138 platforms within GEO. In all 410 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 56 users have contributed.
