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.

MiCASA / Multitaper Circularly Averaged Spectral Analysis

Detects statistically robust phenotypic differences. MiCASA is an unbiased, user-independent method for identifying the phenotypic differences between conditions. It focuses attention on those aspects of the phenotype that have statistical relevance. This package may be used to provide a useful summary of the distribution and interactions between well-known cell types in the thymus. However, MiCASA can be used with any pair of markers.


An open source application for the visualization and analysis of 4D biological datasets. Developed by researchers, it is primarily used for the analysis and quantification of 4D live-imaged confocal data. The software's modular design makes it easy to include existing libraries, or to implement new algorithms. Cell geometries extracted with MorphoGraphX can be exported and used as templates for simulation models, providing a powerful platform to investigate the interactions between shape, genes and growth.

SIMA / Sequential IMage Analysis

Facilitates common analysis tasks related to fluorescence imaging. Functionality SIMA includes correction of motion artifacts occurring during in vivo imaging with laser-scanning microscopy, segmentation of imaged fields into regions of interest (ROIs), and extraction of signals from the segmented ROIs. A graphical user interface (GUI) has also been developed for manual editing of the automatically segmented ROIs and automated registration of ROIs across multiple imaging datasets. This software has been designed with flexibility in mind to allow for future extension with different analysis methods and potential integration with other packages.


Extracts of quantitative information from green fluorescent protein (eGFP) and red fluorescent protein (RFP) labeled spinal cord neurons in double-transgenic zebrafish embryos. zebrafishimage methodology comprises region of interest detection, intensity profiling with reference comparison and neuron distribution histograms. All methods were validated on a manually evaluated pilot study using a Notch inhibitor dose-response experiment. The automated evaluation showed superior performance to manual investigation regarding time consumption, information detail and reproducibility. zebrafishimage algorithms are available to the public as an extension package for the open-source MATLAB toolbox Gait-CAD.


A tool for segmentation, fluorescence quantification, and tracking of cells on microscopy images. CellX decodes the information across the cell membrane and guarantees optimal detection of the cell boundaries on a per-cell basis. Graph cuts account for the information of the cell boundaries through directional cross-correlations, and they automatically incorporate spatial constraints. The method accurately segments images of various cell types grown in dense cultures that are acquired with different microscopy techniques.
