A collection is a software that encapsulate a set of bioimage components and/or workflows.



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)

Chainer is a Python-based deep learning framework aiming at flexibility. It provides automatic differentiation APIs based on the define-by-run approach (a.k.a. dynamic computational graphs) as well as object-oriented high-level APIs to build and train neural networks. It also supports CUDA/cuDNN using CuPy for high performance training and inference. For more details of Chainer, see the documents and resources listed above and join the community in Forum, Slack, and Twitter.



This is the official website of the GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP).

GIMP is a cross-platform image editor available for GNU/Linux, OS X, Windows and more operating systems. It is free software, you can change its source code and distribute your changes.

Whether you are a graphic designer, photographer, illustrator, or scientist, GIMP provides you with sophisticated tools to get your job done. You can further enhance your productivity with GIMP thanks to many customization options and 3rd party plugins.

This note presents the design of a scalable software package named ImagePy for analysing biological images. Our contribution is concentrated on facilitating extensibility and interoperability of the software through decoupling the data model from the user interface. Especially with assistance from the Python ecosystem, this software framework makes modern computer algorithms easier to be applied in bioimage analysis.



JAMA is a basic linear algebra package for Java. It provides user-level classes for constructing and manipulating real, dense matrices. It is meant to provide sufficient functionality for routine problems, packaged in a way that is natural and understandable to non-experts. It is intended to serve as the standard matrix class for Java, and will be proposed as such to the Java Grande Forum and then to Sun. A straightforward public-domain reference implementation has been developed by the MathWorks and NIST as a strawman for such a class. We are releasing this version in order to obtain public comment. There is no guarantee that future versions of JAMA will be compatible with this one.

Bioconductor provides tools for the analysis and comprehension of high-throughput genomic data. Bioconductor uses the R statistical programming language, and is open source and open development. It has two releases each year, 1560 software packages, and an active user community. Bioconductor is also available as an AMI (Amazon Machine Image) and a series of Docker images.

Template Matching and Slice Alignment--- ImageJ Plugins


This ImageJ plugin contains two functions. The first one is the cvMatch_Template. It implements the template matching function from the OpenCV library. The second function Align_slices in stack utilized the previous matching function to do slice registration(alignment) based on a selected landmark. 

For more details, refer to the page of each component.
