ASTEC stands for Adaptive Segmentation and Tracking of Embryonic Cells. It proposes a full workflow for time lapse light sheet imaging analysis, including drift/motion compensation before the segmentation itself, and the capacity to correct for it.  It was used to process 3D+t movies acquired by the MuViSPIM light-sheet microscope in particular.

ClearMap is a toolbox for the analysis and registration of volumetric data from cleared tissues.

It was initially developed to map brain activity at cellular resolution in whole mouse brains using immediate early gene expression. It has since then been extended as a tool for the qunatification of whole mouse brain vascualtur networks at capilary resolution.

It is composed of sevral specialized modules or scripts: tubemap, cellmap, WobblyStitcher.

ClearMap has been designed to analyze O(TB) 3d datasets obtained via light sheet microscopy from iDISCO+ cleared tissue samples immunolabeled for proteins. The ClearMap tools may also be useful for data obtained with other types of microscopes, types of markers, clearing techniques, as well as other species, organs, or samples.

AnnotatorJ is a Fiji Plugin to ease annotation of images, particulrly useful for Deep Learning or to validate an alogorithm. Interestingly, it allows annotation for instance segmentation, semantic segmentation, or bounding box annotations. It includes toolssuch as active contours to ease these annotations.

Phindr3D is a comprehensive shallow-learning framework for automated quantitative phenotyping of three-dimensional (3D) high content screening image data using unsupervised data-driven voxel-based feature learning, which enables computationally facile classification, clustering and data visualization.

Please see our GitHub page and the original publication for details.


Local Z Projector is an ImageJ2 plugin, available in Fiji, that can perform local-Z projection of a 3D stack, possibly over time, possibly very large.

LZP performs projection of a surface of interest on a 2D plane from a 3D image. It is a simple tool that focuses on usability and is designed to be adaptable to many different use cases and image quality.

  • It can work with 3D movies over time with multiple channels.
  • It can work with images much larger than available RAM out of the box.
  • It takes advantage of computers with multiple cores, and can be used in scripts.
