ASCB's online image library wins 'Labby' Readers' Choice Website Award from the Scientist'
Date:9/1/2011

BETHESDA, MD, SEPTEMBER 1, 2011The American Society for Cell Biology's (ASCB) online library of downloadable cell images has won The Scientist's 2011 Readers' Choice Award for favorite website. The Scientist announced that ASCB's The Cell: An Image Library had come top in the Readers' Choice poll with 1,072 votes, beating out the runner up by 284.

Winning the "Labby" award comes on the heels of the ASCB image library's first anniversary, a year in which 3,000 searchable images were posted, attracting 65,000 visits from 157 countries. Funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) through the National Institutes of Health (NIH), "The Cell: An Image Library" was created by the ASCB in collaboration with Glencoe Software and the Open Microscopy Environment (OME).

The ASCB was awarded a $2.5 million stimulus grant in 2009 through NIH's Grand Opportunities program to build a novel multi-dimensional image library of scientific images of cells and their constituents and processes. This online resource of digital images is freely available to multiple end usersresearchers, clinicians, educators, students, and the publicinternationally. The rapidly-growing library is available at http://www.cellimagelibrary.org and currently houses over 3,250 searchable images and over 4,750 total images. Investigators from around the world have contributed image data-single frames, multi-dimensional stacks, and time -lapse videos. The repository is still growing and welcomes contributions.
