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, 1,173,735 digital samples described by 37,559,520 attributes that are drawn from 33,232 experiments described by 132,928 attributes are available.
STAR uses an annotation engine based on a semantic network of crowd-sourced tags that that represent biological annotations. In all, 564 tags have been used to make 37,641 annotations of digital experiments representing 2,647,407 annotations of digital samples.
STAR enables meta-analysis of digitally tagged samples for robust gene signatures using 85,530,863 gene probes across 3,099 platforms within GEO. In all 343 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 49 users have contributed.
