VisBio: a computational tool for visualization of multidimensional biological image data

Traffic. 2004 Jun;5(6):411-7. doi: 10.1111/j.1600-0854.2004.00189.x.


New laser scanning microscopy techniques enable biologists to acquire larger, more complex image datasets. Emerging imaging modalities such as multispectral, harmonic, and fluorescence lifetime can generate data with six or more dimensions; however, existing software is not well suited to the visualization or analysis of such data. To address these concerns, we have developed VisBio, an application and toolkit for visualization and analysis of multidimensional, biological image data of any dimensionality.
