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, 1,144,474 digital samples described by 36,623,168 attributes that are drawn from 32,204 experiments described by 128,816 attributes are available.
STAR uses an annotation engine based on a semantic network of crowd-sourced tags that that represent biological annotations. In all, 519 tags have been used to make 9,075 annotations of digital experiments representing 718,988 annotations of digital samples.
STAR enables meta-analysis of digitally tagged samples for robust gene signatures using 72,919,762 gene probes across 3,060 platforms within GEO. In all 315 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 44 users have contributed.
