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, 1,217,375 digital samples described by 38,956,000 attributes that are drawn from 34,897 experiments described by 139,588 attributes are available.
STAR uses an annotation engine based on a semantic network of crowd-sourced tags that that represent biological annotations. In all, 653 tags have been used to make 39,037 annotations of digital experiments representing 2,749,688 annotations of digital samples.
STAR enables meta-analysis of digitally tagged samples for robust gene signatures using 77,589,900 gene probes across 3,151 platforms within GEO. In all 459 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 57 users have contributed.
