Towards a Unified Portal for Bioimaging Software: The Open Bio Image Alliance

R. Delgado-Gonzalo, M. Unser

Proceedings of the All SystemsX.ch Day 2013 (ASXD'13), Bern BE, Swiss Confederation, May 13, 2013, pp. 68.

The aim of image analysis in bioimaging is to use cutting-edge techniques from the fields of Image Processing and Computer Vision to achieve insights into biological problems through analysis of image datasets. The domain of action of the tools provided by these fields is very large. It begins during the image acquisition process, and extends until the final statistical analysis used when extracting the spatio-temporal information of the biological system. In order to properly analyze the experiments and draw conclusions from analysis results, the scientist should be aware of how these tools work. Simply pressing a button in a piece of software and interpreting the results is not good scientific practice. Open-source software provides the necessary transparency, giving scientists the opportunity to understand the algorithms and the computational methods behind their tools.
