Benchmarking of Single-Molecule Localization Microscopy Software

Comprehensive review of the single-molecule localization microscopy (SMLM) software packages. This benchmarking uses on common reference datasets that simulates biological structures and image formation process. This evaluation of the software packages is performed with well-defined metrics to get an objective and quantitative assessment.

The challenge is now turned into a permanent challenge.




Challenge on 3D 24 Aug. 2015

The second edition of challenge will be held in the Single Molecule Localization Microscopy Symposium (SMLMS) at Lausanne, Switzerland (29 August 2016). This edition will be focus on the 3D localization techniques and software. Send an email to be kept informed.

Publication 15 June 2015

Advanced online publication of the comparative results on the Nature Methods website.

Software 24 Jan. 2015

Update of the comprehensive list of SMLM software packages. 45 for localization software and 6 for deconvolution-type reconstruction software.

Conditions of use 27 Sept. 2014

These reference datasets are designed to be largely used by the developpers to validate theirs software and by the users to check a software. They can be freely used if the sources and references are properly cited.

Online challenge 11 July 2013

The ISBI Challenge is turned to a permanent online challenge.
