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, 1,251,359 digital samples described by 40,043,488 attributes that are drawn from 36,086 experiments described by 144,344 attributes are available.
STAR uses an annotation engine based on a semantic network of crowd-sourced tags that that represent biological annotations. In all, 680 tags have been used to make 39,959 annotations of digital experiments representing 2,816,386 annotations of digital samples.
STAR enables meta-analysis of digitally tagged samples for robust gene signatures using 29,215,337 gene probes across 3,202 platforms within GEO. In all 595 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 71 users have contributed.
