Consortia & Projects
Fiji is an image processing package. It can be described as a "batteries-included" distribution of ImageJ (and ImageJ2), bundling Java,
Java3D and a lot of plugins organized into a coherent menu structure. Fiji compares to ImageJ as Ubuntu compares to Linux.
The Transcription Imaging Consortium (TIC)
develops tools for in vitro and in vivo single molecule imaging and live-cell
microscopy to enable investigation of the assembly, dynamics, and functional specificity of the eukaryotic transcription machinery.
Founder/Developer with Stephan Saalfeld &
ImgLib2 is an open-source Java library for n-dimensional data representation
and manipulation with focus on image processing.
It aims at minimizing code duplication by cleanly separating pixel-algebra, data access and data representation in memory.
OpenSPIM is an Open Access platform for applying and enhancing Selective Plane Illumination Microscopy (SPIM)
aiming to create a powerful synergy between Open Software and Open Hardware.
