ViBE-Z / Virtual Brain Explorer for Zebrafish

An imaging and image analysis framework for virtual colocalization studies in larval zebrafish brains. ViBE-Z contains a database with precisely aligned gene expression patterns, an anatomical atlas, and a software. ViBE-Z software creates high-quality data sets through fusion of multiple confocal stacks, it aligns 3D gene or protein expression patterns of different zebrafish larvae of a given developmental stage to a common reference, and it stores the aligned patterns in the ViBE-Z database. Together with the anatomical segmentation (ViBE-Z atlas), this database allows users to explore the colocalization of all contained patterns in their anatomical context.


Analyzes, processes and visualizes multi-dimensional microscopy images. BioImageXD puts open-source computer science tools for three-dimensional visualization and analysis into the hands of all researchers, through a user-friendly graphical interface tuned to the needs of biologists. BioImageXD has no restrictive licenses or undisclosed algorithms and enables publication of precise, reproducible and modifiable workflows. It allows simple construction of processing pipelines and should enable biologists to perform challenging analyses of complex processes.

MosaicIA / Mosaic Interaction Analysis

Allows spatial point pattern and interaction analysis. MosaicIA provides standardized ways to (1) correct for the influence of the distribution of points within one set onto the distance distribution to another set; (2) infer parameters of the interaction potential, such as the strength and length scale of the interaction; (3) perform statistical hypothesis tests for the presence of an interaction. It has been tested on both synthetic and real-world data.

CDA / Confined Displacement Algorithm Determines True and Random Colocalization

Provides a method for determining true and random colocalization for experimental scenarios. CDA calculates modified Manders coefficients, M1ROI and M2ROI and detects colocalization in cellular and subcellular compartments thanks to standard confocal microscopy and computational image correlation techniques. The module can be used through the ImageJ software and can be applied to various fields including fluorescent wide field or confocal microscopy.

Colocalization Threshold

Allows users to set the thresholds for colocalization analysis. Colocalization can generate a 2D Histogram/Scatterplot/Fluorogram useful for visualizing the correlation of the pixel intensities, over all pixels/voxels in the image. It also makes a linear regression fit of the data in the scatter plot. It does auto threshold determination, and uses an iterative procedure to determine what pair of thresholds for the 2 channels of the scatterplot give a Pearson's correlation coefficient (r) of zero for the pixels below the thresholds.
