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, 1,416,402 digital samples described by 45,324,864 attributes that are drawn from 40,170 experiments described by 160,680 attributes are available.
STAR uses an annotation engine based on a semantic network of crowd-sourced tags that that represent biological annotations. In all, 946 tags have been used to make 41,458 annotations of digital experiments representing 2,921,715 annotations of digital samples.
STAR enables meta-analysis of digitally tagged samples for robust gene signatures using 0 gene probes across 3,349 platforms within GEO. In all 763 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 73 users have contributed.
