From extensive development to test success
One of the unique features of BioImageXD is that it can be used to create completely new analysis methods (and users do not even need programming skills), process thousands of images at the same time and analyse millions of molecules. Comparison tests have shown that BioImageXD is faster and more sensitive than other similar programs.
The development of the BioImageXD software began ten years ago in a University of Jyvskyl research team led by Jyrki Heino. Since then, the work has continued through active collaboration between Heino's team, Varpu Marjomki's team and Daniel White from Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics.
The main development has been led by Pasi Kankaanp, who now works at Turku Centre for Biotechnology as Coordinator of the Cell Imaging Core.
The BioImageXD software will be featured in a special issue of Nature Methods, focusing on the processing of biomedical images.
