Image processing and data processing

This 3D reconstruction shows the color-coded concentration of alpha-CaMKII in the dendrite of a live hippocampal pyramidal cell. CaMKII mediates the induction of synaptic plasticity and is enriched in dendritic spines. For details, please see Zhang et al. (2008) PNAS 105: 12039-44.

Image processing and data processing


Acquisition at the microscope is just the first step to address biological questions. The acquired data must then be visualized and carefully analyzed to prove or reject the working hypotheses. Although for visualization and generic quantification several commercial software packages exist, for more complex analyses dedicated, customized tools are needed. Our task is thus to maintain a selection of commercial packages, to develop analysis modules , either as stand-alone tools or plug-ins for the commercial software, that specifically address our users' questions, and to offer continuous training on all our solutions. Last but not least, we provide an FMI-wide image database that stores the complete dataset and experiment metadata.
