BisQue

Description

Bisque (Bio-Image Semantic Query User Environment) : Store, visualize, organize and analyze images in the cloud. It also allow to run workflows using a set of deployed tools, such as CellProfiler, RootTipMultin Nuclear Tracker, Microtubule tracker etc...

Bisque was developed for the exchange and exploration of biological images.

The Bisque system supports several areas useful for imaging researchers from image capture to image analsysis and querying. The bisque system is centered around a database of images and metadata. Search and comparison of datasets by image data and content is supported. Novel semantic analyses are integrated into the system allowing high level semantic queries and comparison of image content.

  • Bisque is free and open-source
  • Flexible textual and graphical annotations
  • Cloud scalability: PBs of images, millions of annotations
  • Distributed storage: local, iRODS, S3
  • Integrated image analysis, high-throughput with Condor
  • Analysis in MATLAB, Python, Java+ImageJ
  • 100+ biological image formats
  • Very large 5D images (100+ GB)

Openimadis

Description

OpenImadis stands for Open Image Discovery: A platform for Image Life Cycle Management. It was previously called CID iManage (for Curie Image Database).

No image data conversions, no duplication.

- Uploads data to a secure server in the original format

- Unique id for data

Supports sharing and collaboration with access control

- Allows users to upload, view, update or download data based on their access privileges

Supports multiple ways of attaching meta-information

- Annotations, comments and file attachments

-Analysis results as query-able visual objects

Supports Archiving (data moving to another long-term storage but still searchable)

Facilitates custom visualization and analysis

- Access data from preferred analysis and visualization tools

- Access relevant bits of data to build efficient web and mobile application

Facilitate easy access to analysis and visualization applications hosted on other servers

- Run analysis on dedicated compute clusters

- Access applications hosted and published by other users

Highly Scalable

- Supports on-the-fly addition of server nodes to scale concurrent usage

FigureJ

Description

This plugin achieves easy creation of image figures for publications, reports, projects.

  • Easy-to-design interactive figure layout.

  • Visually assign image content to panels.

  • High-quality image scaling and rotation.

  • Easy and consistent panel labels and scale bars.

  • Each panel has it's original datasource's properties and tracks achieved image processing.

  • Save and re-open editable figures.

  • Export as standard image formats with textual description of each panel history.

Compared to Make montage, the plugin adds more flexibility to montage creation: Easy-to-design interactive figure layout. Visually assign image content to panels. High-quality image scaling and rotation. Easy and consistent panel labels and scale bars. Each panel has it's original data source's properties and tracks achieved image processing. Save and re-open editable figures. Export as standard image formats with textual description of each panel history.

Cytomine

Description

Cytomine is a rich internet application using modern web and distributed technologies (Grails, HTML/CSS/Javascript, Docker), databases (spatial SQL and NoSQL), and machine learning (tree-based approaches with random subwindows) to foster active and distributed collaboration and ease large-scale image exploitation.

It provides remote and collaborative principles, rely on data models that allow to easily organize and semantically annotate imaging datasets in a standardized way (using user-defined ontologies associated to regions of interest), efficiently support high-resolution multi-gigapixel images (incl. major digital scanner image formats), and provide mechanisms to readily proofread and share image quantifications produced by any image recognition algorithms.

By emphasizing collaborative principles, the aim of Cytomine is to accelerate scientific progress and to significantly promote image data accessibility and reusability. Cytomine allows to break common practices in this domain where imaging datasets, quantification results, and associated knowledge are still often stored and analyzed within the restricted circle of a specific laboratory.

This software is e.g. being used by life scientists in to help them better evaluate drug treatments or understand biological processes directly from whole-slide tissue images (digital histology), by pathologists to share and ease their diagnosis, and by teachers and students for pathology training purposes. It is also used in various microscopy applications.

Cytomine can be used as a stand-alone application (e.g. on a laptop) or on larger servers for collaborative works.

Cytomine implements object classification, image segmentation, content-based image retrieval, object counting, and interest point detection algorithms using machine learning.

OMERO

Description

OMERO is a free, open source image management software. It is client-server based system which supports 5D images, including big images and high-content screening data. Data are stored on a server using relational database. They are accessed using 3 main clients, a desktop client, a web client and a command line tool. There are bindings from OMERO to other image analysis packages, like FLIMfit, OMERO.searcher. The data in OMERO are organized in groups. A user can be a member of one or more groups. This groups can be collaborative or private, there are 4 levels of permissions to access/edit/annotate/delete the data of other users.

The package is supported not only by community forums, but also by a dedicated team which helps users to solve their problems and deals with the bugs submitted via error submission system.

Strengths

Open source, scalable software, Supports diverse sets of imaging applications and domains (EM,LM, HCS, DigPath) Cross-platform, Java-based application, API support for Java, Python, C++, Django, On-line Forums, Automatic QA and upload of software errors Multi-dimensional images, Web access, Free Demo-server accounts

Limitations

Enterprise-scale software, so complex install, requires expertise, Actively developing API, Python scripts and functions still developing
