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, 1,166,308 digital samples described by 37,321,856 attributes that are drawn from 33,002 experiments described by 132,008 attributes are available.
STAR uses an annotation engine based on a semantic network of crowd-sourced tags that that represent biological annotations. In all, 561 tags have been used to make 33,972 annotations of digital experiments representing 2,488,433 annotations of digital samples.
STAR enables meta-analysis of digitally tagged samples for robust gene signatures using 73,777,912 gene probes across 3,089 platforms within GEO. In all 324 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 46 users have contributed.
