We intend to provide a publicly accessible library of normative images for important cellular assays.
Help in assay implementation and transfer
Comparison of image analysis algorithms
Comparison of imaging instruments
Provide forum to connect biologists and engineers to develop software for new types of assays
Available Image Sets:
Image Format and Distribution
Images are stored in common file formats, e.g. TIFF, JPEG. If the original images were produced in a proprietary format they may be available in the native format and converted to a common format. The metadata that accompanies images (e.g. drug concentrations in different wells) at the moment is in a variety of forms - Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, plain text documents. Over time the metadata will be converted to a common format. Currently image sets from the library are distributed on CDs/DVDs. In the future they may be available for download.
Request for Images
If you can contribute images that would be useful for the stated goals of this library, please contact us.
