The other day on the MGI mailing list a question came through about quantitating images. It’s been a few years since I thought about image processing–but one place where I was the bioinformatics specialist I also provided support to cell biologists, and that was a need of theirs.
I hadn’t visited NIH Image recently, and was curious to see what the status was. Still there. Still a remarkably unassuming page for something so graphical .
I used to run a locally installed copy. But you can also use ImageJ, a Java version you can run on the web. The mailing list over there seems pretty active, so that’s nice to see if it is software you might need to use.
The whole thing reminded me of another resource I hadn’t looked at recently but remembered fondly: OME Open Microscopy Environment: http://openmicroscopy.org
As a cell biologist by training I do have a soft spot for these….
If anyone has other suggestions for image processing, let us know.
