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, 1,179,669 digital samples described by 37,749,408 attributes that are drawn from 33,478 experiments described by 133,912 attributes are available.
STAR uses an annotation engine based on a semantic network of crowd-sourced tags that that represent biological annotations. In all, 566 tags have been used to make 38,270 annotations of digital experiments representing 2,688,865 annotations of digital samples.
STAR enables meta-analysis of digitally tagged samples for robust gene signatures using 85,682,712 gene probes across 3,108 platforms within GEO. In all 343 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 50 users have contributed.
