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, 1,311,614 digital samples described by 41,971,648 attributes that are drawn from 37,454 experiments described by 149,816 attributes are available.
STAR uses an annotation engine based on a semantic network of crowd-sourced tags that that represent biological annotations. In all, 764 tags have been used to make 40,465 annotations of digital experiments representing 2,842,686 annotations of digital samples.
STAR enables meta-analysis of digitally tagged samples for robust gene signatures using 0 gene probes across 3,250 platforms within GEO. In all 660 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 72 users have contributed.
