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, 1,210,714 digital samples described by 38,742,848 attributes that are drawn from 34,595 experiments described by 138,380 attributes are available.
STAR uses an annotation engine based on a semantic network of crowd-sourced tags that that represent biological annotations. In all, 639 tags have been used to make 38,957 annotations of digital experiments representing 2,746,978 annotations of digital samples.
STAR enables meta-analysis of digitally tagged samples for robust gene signatures using 77,161,485 gene probes across 3,141 platforms within GEO. In all 428 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 56 users have contributed.
