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, 1,333,281 digital samples described by 42,664,992 attributes that are drawn from 38,069 experiments described by 152,276 attributes are available.
STAR uses an annotation engine based on a semantic network of crowd-sourced tags that that represent biological annotations. In all, 824 tags have been used to make 40,672 annotations of digital experiments representing 2,854,538 annotations of digital samples.
STAR enables meta-analysis of digitally tagged samples for robust gene signatures using 0 gene probes across 3,275 platforms within GEO. In all 690 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 72 users have contributed.
