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, 1,246,031 digital samples described by 39,872,992 attributes that are drawn from 35,938 experiments described by 143,752 attributes are available.
STAR uses an annotation engine based on a semantic network of crowd-sourced tags that that represent biological annotations. In all, 666 tags have been used to make 39,527 annotations of digital experiments representing 2,788,596 annotations of digital samples.
STAR enables meta-analysis of digitally tagged samples for robust gene signatures using 40,336,696 gene probes across 3,192 platforms within GEO. In all 568 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 69 users have contributed.
