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, 1,203,884 digital samples described by 38,524,288 attributes that are drawn from 34,239 experiments described by 136,956 attributes are available.
STAR uses an annotation engine based on a semantic network of crowd-sourced tags that that represent biological annotations. In all, 611 tags have been used to make 38,889 annotations of digital experiments representing 2,740,447 annotations of digital samples.
STAR enables meta-analysis of digitally tagged samples for robust gene signatures using 85,748,605 gene probes across 3,132 platforms within GEO. In all 398 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 56 users have contributed.
