Spimagine

Description

Spimagine is a python package to interactively visualize and process time lapsed volumetric data as generated with modern light sheet microscopes (hence the Spim part). The package provides a generic 3D+t data viewer and makes use of GPU acceleration via OpenCL. If provides further an image processor interface for the GPU accelerated denoising and deconvolution methods of gputools.

It is only for display (no analysis). The only drawback: it does not handle multichannel time lapse 3D data (only one channel at a time).

shinyHTM

Description

shinyHTM is an open source, web-based tool for data exploration, image visualization and normalization of High Throughput Microscopy data. Within shinyHTM the user is guided through a linear workflow which follows the following best practices:

  • Inspect the numerical data through plotting
  • Measurements are linked to raw images
  • Perform quality control to exclude images with aberrations or where image analysis failed
  • Perform a reproducible data analysis
  • Normalize data and report statistical significance

Image visualization relies on Fiji/ImageJ, along with its wealth of analytical tools.

shinyHTM can be used to analyze image features obtained with CellProfiler, ImageJ or any other bioimage analysis software. The output of analysis is a publication-ready scoring of the data.

shinyHTM is based on the R shiny package.

TTK the Topology Toolkit

Description

The Topology ToolKit (TTK) is an open-source library and software collection for topological data analysis in scientific visualization.

TTK can handle scalar data defined either on regular grids or triangulations, either in 2D or in 3D. It provides a substantial collection of generic, efficient and robust implementations of key algorithms in topological data analysis. It includes:
 · For scalar data: critical points, integral lines, persistence diagrams, persistence curves, merge trees, contour trees, Morse-Smale complexes, topological simplification;
 · For bivariate scalar data: fibers, fiber surfaces, continuous scatterplots, Jacobi sets, Reeb spaces;
 · For uncertain scalar data: mandatory critical points;
 · For time-varying scalar data: critical point tracking;
 · For high-dimensional / point cloud data: dimension reduction;
 · and more!

 

TTK makes topological data analysis accessible to end users thanks to easy-to-use plugins for the visualization front end ParaView. Thanks to ParaView, TTK supports a variety of input data formats.
 

TTK is written in C++ but comes with a variety of bindings (VTK/C++, Python) and standalone command-line programs. It is modular and easy to extend. We have specifically developed it such that you can easily write your own data analysis tools as TTK modules.

Paraview

Description

ParaView is an open-source, multi-platform data analysis and visualization application. ParaView users can quickly build visualizations to analyze their data using qualitative and quantitative techniques. The data exploration can be done interactively in 3D or programmatically using ParaView’s batch processing capabilities.

ParaView was developed to analyze extremely large datasets using distributed memory computing resources. It can be run on supercomputers to analyze datasets of petascale size as well as on laptops for smaller data, has become an integral tool in many national laboratories, universities and industry, and has won several awards related to high performance computation.

ImagePy

Description

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.
