easyFRAP: an interactive, easy-to-use tool for qualitative and quantitative analysis of FRAP data

Bioinformatics. 2012 Jul 1;28(13):1800-1. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/bts241. Epub 2012 Apr 27.


Summary: We present easyFRAP, a versatile tool that assists quantitative and qualitative analysis of fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP) data. The user can handle simultaneously large data sets of raw data, visualize fluorescence recovery curves, exclude low quality data, perform data normalization, extract quantitative parameters, perform batch analysis and save the resulting data and figures for further use. Our tool is implemented as a single-screen Graphical User Interface (GUI) and is highly interactive, as it permits parameterization and visual data quality assessment at various points during the analysis.

Availability: easyFRAP is free software, available under the General Public License (GPL). Executable and source files, supplementary material and sample data sets can be downloaded at: ccl.med.upatras.gr/easyfrap.html.
