TAMMiCol: Tool for analysis of the morphology of microbial colonies

Many microbes are studied by examining colony morphology via two-dimensional top-down images. The quantification of such images requires each pixel to be labelled as belonging to either the colony or background, producing a binary image. While this may be achieved manually for a single colony, this is infeasible for large datasets containing thousands of images. TAMMiCol has been developed to efficiently and automatically convert colony images to binary.

Detection and analysis of spatiotemporal patterns in brain activity

In this study, by uniquely adapting techniques for the identification of coherent structures in fluid turbulence, Townsend et al. develop new analytical and computational methods for the reliable detection of a diverse range of propagating wave patterns in large-scale neural recordings, for comprehensive analysis and visualization of these patterns, and for analysis of their dominant spatiotemporal modes.
