A Hitchhiker`s Guide through the Bio-image Analysis Software Universe
Modern research in the life sciences is unthinkable without computational methods for extracting, quantifying and visualizing information derived from biological microscopy imaging data. In the past decade, we observed a dramatic increase in available software packages for these purposes. As it is increasingly difficult to keep track of the number of available image analysis platforms, tool collections, components and emerging technologies, we provide a conservative overview of software we use in daily routine and give insights into emerging new tools. We give guidance on which aspects to consider when choosing the right platform, including aspects such as image data type, skills of the team, infrastructure and community at the institute and availability of time and budget.
