bacteria

Description

This is an ImageJ plugin to analyze bacterial cells. It provides a user-friendly interface and a powerful suite of detection, analysis and data presentation tools. It works with individual phase or fluorescence images as well as stacks, hyperstacks, and folders of any of these types. Even large image sets are analyzed rapidly generating raw tabular data that can either be saved or copied as is, or have additional statistical analysis performed and graphically represented directly from within MicrobeJ, making it an all-in-one image analysis solution.

Description

Quote: *SpotFinderZ (from now on simply SpotFinder) detects round, usually diffraction-limited spots inside bacterial cells outlined with MicrobeTracker and places them into the meshes structure produced by MicrobeTracker. The program is written in MATLAB and saves the data in the MicrobeTracker format by appending additional fields.*

Description

Count bacterial colonies on agar plates and measure the occupied surfaces. The user has to provide a selection (roi) of the area that will be analyzed. He can than run the segmentation and if necessary correct the results. In a third step he can run the counting and measurement.

Description
Oufti (previously named MicrobeTracker) is a MATLAB application / suite of tools for analysing fluorescent spots inside microbes. MicrobeTracker can identify cell outlines and fluorescent foci, and generate plots and statistics based on positions and intensity (kymographs, histograms etc.) The MATLAB code is easy to modify and extend to add additional plots and statistics: see e.g. [Lesterlin et al. (2014)](http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24362571). The Outfi Forum is [quite active](https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/ouftiinfo).
