Project summary

We will provide image analysis software that can extract information about how cells form functional and morphological networks in tissues or organoids based on 3D imaging data. These methods would be useful for understanding the cell to cell interactions that govern tissue formation, repair, and pathology. This software is built on a data-exploration framework that enables flexible interrogation of complex datasets. It is designed to be readily extensible and new segmentation methods from other groups can be incorporated into this single data-exploration system.

We will enable the most effective use of data and provide an environment for collaborative exploration of datasets by investing in a sustainable open-source format and providing a flexible database for data exploration.
