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, 1,259,361 digital samples described by 40,299,552 attributes that are drawn from 36,295 experiments described by 145,180 attributes are available.
STAR uses an annotation engine based on a semantic network of crowd-sourced tags that that represent biological annotations. In all, 686 tags have been used to make 40,008 annotations of digital experiments representing 2,818,581 annotations of digital samples.
STAR enables meta-analysis of digitally tagged samples for robust gene signatures using 0 gene probes across 3,211 platforms within GEO. In all 600 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.
