ImageM

Description

ImageM integrates into a GUI several algorithms for interactive image processing and analysis. Interface is largely inspired from the open source software "ImageJ".

MorphoNet

Description

MorphoNet is a novel concept of web-based morphodynamic browser to visualise and interact with complex datasets, with applications in research and teaching. 

MorphoNet offers a comprehensive palette of interactions to explore the structure, dynamics and variability of biological shapes and its connection to genetic expressions. 

By handling a broad range of natural or simulated morphological data, it fills a gap which has until now limited the quantitative understanding of morphodynamics and its genetic underpinnings by contributing to the creation of ever-growing morphological atlases.

Napari image viewer

Description

napari is a fast, interactive, multi-dimensional image viewer for Python. It’s designed for browsing, annotating, and analyzing large multi-dimensional images. It’s built on top of Qt (for the GUI), vispy (for performant GPU-based rendering), and the scientific Python stack (e.g. numpyscipy). It includes critical viewer features out-of-the-box, such as support for large multi-dimensional data, and layering and annotation. By integrating closely with the Python ecosystem, napari can be easily coupled to leading machine learning and image analysis tools (e.g. scikit-imagescikit-learnTensorFlowPyTorch), enabling more user-friendly automated analysis.

Neuroglancer

Description

Web based viewer developped for google for very big data: 

Neuroglancer is a WebGL-based viewer for volumetric data. It is capable of displaying arbitrary (non axis-aligned) cross-sectional views of volumetric data, as well as 3-D meshes and line-segment based models (skeletons). The segmentation has to be done before loading the dataset, it is not done Inside the viewer.

This is not an official Google product.

It has among other the nice feature of beeing able to generate url for sharing a specific view.

Note that the only supported browser for now are 

  • Chrome >= 51
  • Firefox >= 46

MIPs for PSFs

Description

The macro generates orthogonal projections from bead images along the lateral and axial dimensions which are displayed using a customized look-up-table to color code intensities. A Gaussian curve is fit to the intensity profile of a fluorescent bead image and full-with-at-half-maximum (FWHM) values are extracted, and listed next to theoretical values for comparison. 

TEM ExosomeAnalyzer

Description

TEM ExosomeAnalyzer is a program for automatic and semi-automatic detection of extracellular vesicles (EVs), such as exosomes, or similar objects in 2D images from transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The program detects the EVs, finds their boundaries, and reports information about their size and shape.

The software has been developed in terms of project MUNI/M/1050/2013 and supported by Grant Agency of Masaryk University.

The EVs are detected based on the shape and edge contrast criteria. The exact shapes of the EVs are then segmented using a watershed-based approach.

With proper parameter settings, even images with EVs both lighter and darked than the background, or containing artifacts or precipitated stain can be processed. If the fully-automatic processing fails to produce the correct results, the program can be used semi-automatically, letting the user adjust the detection seeds during the intermediate steps, or even draw the whole segmentation manually.
