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, 1,234,670 digital samples described by 39,509,440 attributes that are drawn from 35,508 experiments described by 142,032 attributes are available.
STAR uses an annotation engine based on a semantic network of crowd-sourced tags that that represent biological annotations. In all, 654 tags have been used to make 39,178 annotations of digital experiments representing 2,762,823 annotations of digital samples.
STAR enables meta-analysis of digitally tagged samples for robust gene signatures using 43,473,661 gene probes across 3,172 platforms within GEO. In all 465 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 65 users have contributed.
