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, 1,190,942 digital samples described by 38,110,144 attributes that are drawn from 33,829 experiments described by 135,316 attributes are available.
STAR uses an annotation engine based on a semantic network of crowd-sourced tags that that represent biological annotations. In all, 584 tags have been used to make 38,487 annotations of digital experiments representing 2,704,864 annotations of digital samples.
STAR enables meta-analysis of digitally tagged samples for robust gene signatures using 85,592,937 gene probes across 3,119 platforms within GEO. In all 365 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 51 users have contributed.
