staRank is an R package for ranking variables based on their stability.Detecting all relevant variables from a data set is challenging, especially when only few samples are available and data is noisy. Stability ranking provides improved variable rankings of increased robustness using resampling or subsampling.
StAR is a web server and standalone program for the statistical comparison of several binary classifiers. This server assesses the statistical significance of the observed differences between two or more classifiers by means of their ROC (Receiver Operating Characteristic) curves. The statistical comparison relies on a non-parametric test and the area under the ROC curves (AUCs). The server is able to perform the simultaneous pairwise comparison of many binary classifiers.
The program STAR (Search for Tandem Approximate Repeats) searches for significant Approximate Tandem Repeats (ATR) of a given motif in a DNA sequence. For each region of the sequence that is similar to a tandem repeat of the input motif, STAR returns a description of the segment that it calls a “Zone”, and an optimal alignment of the zone with the best possible Exact Tandem Repeat. (Here, exact means perfect.) STAR optimally detects all such zones in the sequence.
